This book is a comprehensive yet accessible introduction to learning and teaching in higher education, and an invaluable resource if you are seeking to enhance and develop your teaching in the context of the Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF). It also supports your progress towards Fellowship of the Higher Education Academy (HEA), with an overview of the UK Professional Standards Framework (UKPSF) and linking content to the framework. This book is for new and existing teachers in higher education and those teaching higher education programmes in further education colleges. As well as helping you enhance and extend your understanding of the theory and practice of learning and teaching, this book encourages you to reflect on and improve your teaching in higher education to meet the needs of a diversity of students in the changing landscape of higher education. Together with its progressive and logical sequencing of topics - covering planning and preparation; techniques, methods and resources; assessment, quality and evaluation - the book provides: • A core text and resource for new teachers in higher education undertaking postgraduate programmes in learning and teaching. • An accessible and practical introduction to the knowledge and skills required to become a confident and effective lecturer in higher education • Mapping to the HEA UK Professional Standards Framework to provide guidance and support for those working towards Fellowship of the HEA together with sample Fellowship applications • 'Pause & Reflect' boxes to reinforce your professional learning journey "This book is not only an excellent introduction to learning and teaching in university but also for those providing higher level learning in further education colleges. It is an ideal companion for lecturers and teachers undertaking postgraduate programmes in learning and teaching and also for those seeking Fellowship of the Higher Education Academy. The core message of the book is that improving teaching, learning and quality begins with teachers themselves through their own professionalism, scholarship and reflective practice." Vicky Duckworth, Reader in Education, Edge Hill University, UK "Pete Scales begins his book by asking the question ‘What is teaching?’ and giving possible answers and raising further questions. This sets the tone for his approach in this wide-ranging almost encyclopaedic book that touches on all the topics and issues that someone new to higher education is required to address. But this introductory book is unique because Scales never loses what is his professional passion and his authorial focus - the relationship between the teacher and the student. All education is founded on the relationship between a teacher and a student and Scales provides a guide for the new higher education teacher through the confusing and confused world of higher education in order that they can remain a teacher despite institutional distractions." Dennis Hayes, Professor of Education, University of Derby, UK "This book provides a welcome and timely addition which will be of huge value to anybody with an interest in teaching and learning in higher education. It will be of particular value to those new to teaching in the higher education sector as well as more experienced staff who wish to update their skills or apply for Higher Education Academy recognition." Chris Wakeman, Head of Education and Inclusion Studies, University of Wolverhampton, UK "Explicit links to specific elements of each dimension of the UK Professional Standards Framework make this text invaluable to those producing evidence for taught routes to HEA fellowship or associate fellowship, and for those embarking on applications for FHEA based on CPD and experience. It gives good guidance to alignment of each element of the UKPSF dimensions with personal professional experiences. Peter Scales shares my dislike for the word ‘delivery’ to describe teaching and clearly explains why! The text is passionate,"readable and engaging with a logical presentation of the lived experiences of teaching in higher education.” Beverley Hale, Professor of Learning and Teaching, University of Chichester, UK

Everything for Sale The Marketisation of UK Higher Education

Incorporation of further education colleges. Introduction of Teaching Quality Assessment (Subject Review) as intended complement to RAE. Establishment of the Higher Education Quality Council as a sector—owned quality assurance body.

The marketisation of higher education is a growing worldwide trend. Increasingly, market steering is replacing or supplementing government steering. Tuition fees are being introduced or increased, usually at the expense of state grants to institutions. Grants for student support are being replaced or supplemented by loans. Commercial rankings and league tables to guide student choice are proliferating with institutions devoting increasing resources to marketing, branding and customer service. The UK is a particularly good example of this, not only because it is a country where marketisation has arguably proceeded furthest, but also because of the variations that exist as Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland increasingly diverge from England. In Everything for Sale, Roger Brown argues that the competitive regime that is now applicable to our Higher Education system was the logical, and possibly inevitable, outcome of a process that began with the introduction of full cost fees for overseas students in 1980. Through chapters including: Markets and Non-Markets The Institutional Pattern of Provision The Funding of Research The Funding of Student Education Quality Assurance The Impact of Marketisation: Efficiency, diversity and equity; He shows how the evaluation and funding of research, the funding of student education, quality assurance, and the structure of the system have increasingly been organised on market or quasi-market lines. As well as helping to explain the evolution of British higher education over the past thirty years, the book contains some important messages about the consequences of introducing or extending market competition in universities’ core activities of teaching and research. This timely and comprehensive book is essential reading for all academics at University level and anyone involved in Higher Education policy.

This book provides tips and guidelines for teachers and learners of modern foreign languages in higher education institutions, drawing on the authors' experiences of teaching languages including Turkish, Japanese and Korean to suggest strategies and approaches that promote effective use of the online environment. As well as shedding light on modern languages that are typically under-studied and under-represented in the literature, this book demonstrates how the online sphere is increasingly fundamental to language use, change and contact. The authors provide practical guidance to help teachers and learners capitalise on the opportunities presented by a virtual educational context, and offer a more resilient blended approach that will increase teachers' and students' preparedness for changing circumstances and institutional priorities in the future. This book is primarily aimed at teachers and students of foreign languages within HE settings, but its focus on new perspectives will also be of interest to scholars researching the online shift in language education, applied linguistics, curriculum design and educational technology.

Throughout the world, teacher education is once more in the spotlight. This book focuses on recent trends and experiences in England and Wales, where external pressures have caused tension between the technician model of teacher education, in which teachers learn primarily on the job alongside colleagues, and traditional forms of teacher education based in higher education institutions. This tension superficially replicates an old dichotomy between practice and theory. The contributors to this volume reflect on ideas and attempts to integrate theory and practice. Key questions and themes recur: the balance and relationship between work done in school on the job and work away from the workplace, such as in universities; teacher education as a partnership activity; and the need to critically examine the institutional, cultural, and historical context in which they work.
