About the Series

Key Guides for Effective Teaching in Higher Education

This indispensable series is aimed at new lecturers, postgraduate students who have teaching time, Graduate Teaching Assistants, part-time tutors and demonstrators, as well as experienced teaching staff who may feel it’s time to review their skills in teaching and learning.

Titles in this series will provide the teacher in higher education with practical, realistic guidance on the various different aspects of their teaching role, which is underpinned not only by current research in the field, but also by the extensive experience of individual authors, and with a keen eye kept on the limitations and opportunities therein. By bridging a gap between academic theory and practice, all titles will provide generic guidance on the topics covered, which is then brought to life through the use of short, illustrative examples drawn from a range of disciplines. All titles in the series will:

  • represent up-to-date thinking and incorporate the use of computing and appropriate learning technology
  • consider methods and approaches for teaching and learning when there is an increasing diversity in learning and a growth in student numbers
  • encourage readers to reflect, critique and apply learning in their practice and professional context
  • provide links and references to other work on the topic and research evidence where appropriate.

Titles in the series will prove invaluable whether they are used for self-study, as reference material when seeking teaching recognition or as part of a formal taught programme on teaching and learning in higher education (HE), and will also be of relevance to teaching staff working in further education (FE) settings.
