Praise for Effective Teaching with Technology in Higher Education " This is not one of those technology-is-the-panacea-for-all-educational-ills books- that' s why I liked it. Much more sensibly, it takes the position that in certain contexts and for particular purposes technology can promote better teaching and more learning." - Maryellen Weimer, editor, The Teaching Professor " Distance education deans, coordinators, instructors, trainers, and instructional designer will all benefit from the information Bates and Poole share with their readers. They elaborate on the steps to teaching with technology- from vision to design to implementation to maintenance." - Judith Norton, director of training, California Virtual Campus, Professional Development Center " This book is a comprehensive resource for educators- by educators. It answers the questions that we all face as we strive to increase access and improve the quality of ourdistance education programs." - Bill Sollecito, director, Public Health Leadership Program, School of Public Health, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill " Finally! A faculty-centered tech book! Bates and Poole are faculty and write for faculty who want to lighten their work-load and heighten student learning. A must for today' s faculty, regardless of discipline." - Laura L. B. Border, director, Graduate Teacher Program, University of Colorado, Boulder

It includes key topics such as student engagement and motivation, internationalisation, employability, inclusive strategies for teaching, effective use of technology and issues relating to postgraduate students and student retention. Part 1 explores a number of aspects of the context of UK higher education that affect the education of students, looking at the drivers of institutional behaviours and how to achieve success as a university teacher. Part 2 examines learning, teaching and supervising in higher education and includes chapters on working with diversity, encouraging independent learning and learning gain. Part 3 considers approaches to teaching and learning in different disciplines, covering a full range including arts and humanities, social sciences, experimental sciences through to medicine and dentistry.

This book explores successful transition strategies to, within and from university for students from around the globe, with Macquarie University, a large Australian university, studied in depth. It addresses the meaning of success taking a variety of perspectives, including student, staff and employer views. The chapters present a series of initiatives that have proven to be successful in assisting students in developing their academic potential throughout university and beyond. The authors of the chapters use a variety of methodologies and approaches reflecting the diverse local contexts and requirements. These international perspectives demonstrate a triumph of practice that has led to the empowerment of individuals and groups. The approaches from twelve universities located in eight different countries stem directly from the coalface and provide many valuable lessons and tools that colleagues in the sector will be able to consider and adapt in their own contexts. Small interventions matter, from a mentor of a nervous student who goes on to achieve greatness, to the use of a curriculum design model that hooks a whole group of students into learning and achievement. This book covers both the small, individual victories and the larger scale strategies that support success. Contributions emanate from Australia, Bangladesh, India, China, New Zealand, United Kingdom, Canada, USA, Uruguay and South Africa.
