    Book details

Higher education today finds itself confronting many challenges, economic, technological, and social. Universities reliance on transmissive education, with the lecture as the dominant vehicle for many of their processes, is being thrown into ever greater question. "Beyond Transmission: Innovations in University Teaching" responds to the challenges to higher education by championing a shift to a constructivist approach. The contributors, from five continents and reflecting 10 national mindsets, represent a broad cross-section of educational disciplines. They argue that innovatory teaching approaches are essential if teachers are to appeal to the mindsets of people entering higher education today, and present detailed examples of new ways of instilling in students a love of, and ability for, learning. Beyond Transmission: Innovations in University Teaching states that any innovatory teaching approach that goes beyond transmission requires consideration of three essential factors: vision, process and practice. The anthology s contributions are organized around each of these imperatives in turn. The vision for higher education is one in which teachers develop their students as producers rather than as customers. This book, which has been produced by the International Academic Association for Enhancement of Learning in Higher Education (LIHE), shows that across the world an increasing number of faculty members are actively concerned with innovating in their own educational practice. It highlights that, although technology has an important role to play in innovation, technology is not a "sine qua non" and presents some valuable pointers to the future of learning in higher education."
