Teaching and Learning in Higher Education - Challenges and Possibilities
In the next few years a considerable number of new teachers of different categories will be recruited to higher education institutions. This will also coincide with larger and more heterogeneous student groups and an increase in national and global competition. At the same time, the economic prerequisites and demands for students' employability after university are becoming much more stringent. A good professional induction increases teachers' possibilities of succeeding in their professional development.
In the book the authors problematise the higher institutions' mandate as the prerequisite for higher education teachers' work. They highlight the various aspects of teaching in the higher educational institution: lectures, seminars, supervision, examinations, online education and values. The book also addresses the higher education teacher's development and career possibilities and discusses the documentation of qualifications.
This is the English version of Att arbeta i högskolan that was revised in 2010. Teaching and Learning in Higher Education – Challenges and Possibilities is suitable for new and more experienced teachers in a higher education context.
