Understanding Learning-Centred Higher EducationClaus Nygaard & Clive Holtham
Edition: 1, 2008
In 18 chapters researchers and practitioners from five continents discuss three central themes that concern learning-centred higher education: 1) the concept of learning; 2) curriculum; 3) learning, teaching and assessment (LTA) processes. The chapters integrate theoretical conceptualisations and empirical examples. The book thereby offers both new approaches to the understanding of learning-centred higher education, as well as normative implications and examples of best practices from people involved in everyday practices of quality enhancement within higher education.
The book came out of an international symposium on Aegina Island, Greece, arranged by the international academic association Learning in Higher Education: www.lihe.wordpress.com
