Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

What makes a university teacher "excellent?"As debates rage around whether it is down to subject-knowledge, communication skills, taking a research-led approach or being a technological whiz, this book identifies and examines interpretations of teaching excellence and helps the reader to develop their own understanding and practice of teaching in light of the recently researched evidence.<BR>Using as its central case study the practice of the UK's most "excellent" university teachers, as awarded by the National Teaching Fellowship Scheme, this book features insightful interviews with all the award winners who teach across a variety of subject areas, and establishes the key skills and strategies which lead to their public accolade. As similar schemes exist around the world, particularly the USA, Canada, Australia and South Africa, the book offers a comparative analysis of these schemes and helps the reader to locate national policies and practices within the growing worldwide "excellence movement" in higher education.<BR>Lecturers in any higher education establishment who are passionate about raising the standards of their teaching will find much in this book to inform and enthuse them. This book will also make an exceptional companion for students on postgraduate, diploma and masters courses.
