A very useful and up-to date survey of excellent practice in teaching, learning and assessment from across the world.

'In this readable book, lecturers will find opportunities to reflect on their own teaching practices as well as practical advice and tips to implement in the classroom. The case studies, in particular, give us a window into the global world of teaching practices in higher education.' - Donna Qualters, Director, Center for the Enhancement of Learning and Teaching (CELT), Tufts University, USA
'This wide-ranging book brings together a wealth of information about effective teaching, learning and assessment and is illustrated with so many examples and suggestions that everyone in higher education will find something new and interesting to try out in their own situations.' - Hetty Grunefeld, Senior Educational Consultant, Utrecht University, Netherlands
