IT in Action

Stimulating Quality Learning at Undergraduate Students

Edited by: Gabriela Pleschová

This book examines the conditions where information technology (IT) can stimulate high quality learning, in particular at the undergraduate level and in social science courses. The contributors show that emerging technologies can be particularly helpful while teaching large student groups or while teaching courses with rapidly changing content. The reported effects of the use of IT in undergraduate courses include: making learning more interactive * developing a broader range of student skills and abilities * stimulating creativity and students' care in the products of their learning * offering an effective and a more personal feedback to student learning * stimulating better peer learning and peer assessment * consolidating student knowledge.
