Monograph No. 4: Student Learning and University Teaching
Edited by Noel Entwistle, Peter Tomlinson and Julie Dockrell
This monograph issue brings together descriptions of distinctive contributions to research into teaching and learning in higher education provided by international scholars in the field. The common theme is the attempt to understand the ways in which students or young professionals go about learning, studying and preparing for their future professional roles, and how university teachers can support that learning. Teaching and learning in higher education can be seen as an interactive system that depends on the characteristics of the student, the specific nature of the subject matter, and the whole teaching-learning environment being provided. Given the complexity of this whole system, the research reported here inevitably concentrates on just parts of that whole, but together it provides a convincing portrayal of teaching and learning in higher education, with important implications for practice.
