Understanding Learning-Centred Higher Education

Edited by: Claus Nygaard, Clive Holtham

This book - a product of an international symposium held in Greece in June 2008 and arranged by the international academic association Learning in Higher Education - addresses the importance of moving from a content-based view to a learning-centered view of higher education. Researchers and practitioners from five continents discuss three central themes that concern learning-centered higher education - the concept of learning; curriculum; and learning, teaching, and assessment processes. The chapters integrate theoretical conceptualizations and empirical examples. The book thereby offers both new approaches to the understanding of learning-centered higher education, as well as normative implications and examples of best practices from people involved in everyday practices of quality enhancement within higher education.
