Annotation

Teaching practice in higher education can be transformed through the use of Whole Brainr Learning (WBL). Whole Brainr Learning in Higher Education argues that teaching practice in Higher Education should undergo transformation in order to develop the full academic potential of all stakeholders following the principles of action research. Empirical data were collected from participants in a number of projects across diverse disciplines. Participants included students; academic staff; instructional designers; and professionals attending short courses at tertiary level. A number of case studies are discussed as evidence for the value of the proposed model for higher education. This title consists of seven chapters, covering: the theoretical framework; baseline study; professional development; studies in whole brain application; learning material that makes a difference; multidisciplinary collaboration; and the way forward. Readership: Students and teachers in higher education, and all those interested in improving pedagogy and learning in a higher education context.
