Abstract

Changing University Learning and Teaching: Engaging and Mobilising Leadership, Quality and Technology contributes original and significant research to the field of university learning and teaching. It does this by focusing on two intersecting elements of university learning and teaching, each directed at a different sense of the key term 'changing': as an adjective, to map and understand how learning and teaching in higher education are continuously adapting and mutating in response to multiple pressures and stimuli; as a gerund, to record and interrogate the ongoing efforts by the contributing authors and many others to maximise the transformative potential of that learning and teaching. The book focuses on three key elements of efforts to change university learning and teaching more sustainably and systematically: leadership quality technology. Separately and in combination, leadership, quality and technology can facilitate changing university learning and teaching in ways that make higher education more productive, relevant and potentially transformative. The 18 chapters in the book explore multiple manifestations of engagements with and mobilisations of those processes and hoped for outcomes.
