Summary

With practical advice that can be immediately applied to a higher education setting, Teaching for Learning Gain in Higher Education provides materials and methods specifically designed to improve teaching, learning and assessment for students in higher education through student-centric methods.

Considering how to improve students’ learning strategies and thus their learning gain, this book answers key questions about how students can be helped to construct meaning and their own knowledge and knowledge hierarchies. Based in education and psychological theory, it examines nine cognitive approaches that have been tried and tested and explores how motivation can be both set up and maintained.

Unpacking the concept of learning gain to be both accessible and constructive, this book includes chapters on:

  • The nature of higher learning gain and how programmes have achieved it
  • Theories and practice of teaching and learning in higher education
  • Problems and issues for distance and blended learning programmes
  • Strategies to promote learning gain in higher education

Teaching for Learning Gain in Higher Education fully explores the nature of self-regulated learning and how it can be promoted and maintained to improve student learning. This book is ideal reading for anyone involved in teaching in higher education.
