International Perspectives on Teaching Excellence in Higher Education

Skelton A.  International Perspectives on Teaching Excellence in Higher Education. Routledge, 2016. ISBN: 9781138973206. Pages: 320

There has been an explosion of interest in teaching excellence in higher education. Once labelled the ‘poor relation’ of the research/teaching divide, teaching is now firmly on the policy agenda; pressure on institutions to improve the quality of teaching has never been greater and significant funding seeks to promote teaching excellence in higher education institutions.

This book constitutes  a serious scrutiny of how and why it should be achieved. International perspectives from educational researchers, award winning teachers, practitioners and educational developers consider key topics, including:

-policy initiatives
-research-led teaching
-teaching excellence and scholarship
-the significance of academic disciplines
-research into teaching excellence
-rewarding through promotion
-inclusive learning and ICT.
