Innovative Teaching Strategies and Methods Promoting Lifelong Learning in Higher Education: From Theory to Practice, by Hava E. Vidergor and Orly Sela

Book Description: 
This book is a comprehensive study of innovative strategies and methods in higher education, and may serve as a guide for college and university lecturers wishing to expand their teaching repertoire. The book offers theoretical constructs and their practical applications in a wide variety of fields demonstrating the implementation of field-tested methods and techniques. It focuses on teaching-learning strategies in higher education in different applied fields, addressing four main areas, each comprising of several subtopics: 1. The main challenges of academic teaching (i.e., transdisciplinary teaching-learning, teaching large classes and alternative/formative assessment); 2. Using technology (i.e., incorporating technology, blended learning environments and distance learning); 3. Cooperative teaching-learning strategies (i.e., problem based learning, project based learning and personal learning network); and 4. Values-based methods (i.e., promoting social responsibility and future thinking, values and knowledge education, and adapting teaching learning to special needs). Each of the fourteen chapters, which are written at a high academic standard, presents a current theoretical review followed by a description of sample courses and/or activities exemplifying possible applications of the relevant theory. The contributors are European university and college lecturers and researchers, experts in their respective fields, who have participated in two European Union ERASMUS+ projects, share the love of teaching and wish to disseminate these innovating teaching practices among higher education institutions.
