Quality Enhancement of University Teaching and Learning

A Learning in Higher Education anthology

by Claus Nygaard, Nigel Courtney and Paul Bartholomew

Description

The challenge addressed by the international scholars and academic practitioners contributing to Quality Enhancement of University Teaching and Learning is how best to enhance the quality of university teaching and learning, and thereby generate a culture of quality in Higher Education. The book focuses on approaches to Quality Enhancement (QE), a process which has significant differences to the interrelated concept of Quality Assurance (QA), particularly in relation to aspirations for change. Since successful QE initiatives must always involve jointly the student, the teacher and the institution, the three sections of the anthology address the practice of QE in relation to each of these constituencies. Examples of quality enhancement in higher education from Australia, Belgium, Denmark, England, Finland, Iceland, Portugal, Scotland, and United Arab Emirates are presented, with each section starting from contributions offering micro-level approaches and progressing to those offering macro-level perspectives.
