Student Engagement and Quality Assurance in Higher Education suggests that a closer student-teacher collaboration is needed in order to achieve high-quality university education systems and student learning programmes. The authors present ten case studies on student engagement in different countries: Sweden, Finland, the UK, the US, Australia, Brazil, Mozambique, Kazakhstan, China and Japan, respectively. By covering different cultures and backgrounds, they provide an in-depth analysis of pros and cons of various approaches concerning students-teachers partnerships. The editor, Masahiro Tanaka, is Associate Professor at the Research Centre for University Studies, the University of Tsukuba (Japan). The book aims at encouraging debate and research on successful ways of involving students for improving student engagement and quality assurance in higher education.
