Learning and Teaching in Higher Education free pdf The central focus of this Major Work is on issues, challenges and changes in the field of teaching and learning in Higher Education, and particularly those which have developed over the past few decades. Since the 19th Century there has been a constant debate over what universities and higher education should and could be, and with the purposes, costs and value to society coming to the fore of the discussion in most recent times. While there is no doubt that the issues involved in movements and changes such as "globalization", "commercialisation", "massification", and "corporatization" - as they have been characterized over the last few decades - have significantly impacted Universities, there have also been profound effects of greater access of more diverse groups to Higher Education, increases in areas of study and their application, and in the impact of technology as never before. Across four thematic volumes, this Major Work examines a number of these effects and how they have led to issues and developments in the field. Volume One: Curriculum Development in Higher Education Volume Two: Teaching Techniques and Alternatives Volume Three: The Impact of Technology Volume Four: Assessment and Evaluation of Teaching and Learning
