ABOUT THE BOOK WE’RE GOING TO PUBLISH WORLDWIDE 

The aim of higher education is to the improve knowledge, skills, and competencies of students to prepare them for their future life and careers. For many years the dominant paradigm underlying this endeavor has been didactic teaching in lecture theatres, where one responsible teacher delivers content to students. Social learning theories, modern epistemologies, and new technologies are some of the aspects that have pushed for a change in the paradigm of teaching and learning in higher education.

The book we are going to write together at the 19th international LiHE-symposium in Wonderful Copenhagen, May 14-15-16, 2018, will showcase INNOVATIVE TEACHING AND LEARNING PRACTICES IN HIGHER EDUCATION.

We call upon teachers, researchers, and relevant professionals in higher education to join forces and submit their INNOVATIVE TEACHING AND LEARNING PRACTICE for inclusion in this inspiring international book of the highest quality. The book will inspire readers to engage their students in new ways of teaching and learning.  

The book will document INNOVATIVE TEACHING AND LEARNING PRACTICES IN HIGHER EDUCATION.

The book will have 9 main sections:

  • Section 1: innovative teaching and learning practices using e-learning;

  • Section 2: innovative teaching and learning practices using games/simulations/role-play;

  • Section 3: innovative teaching and learning practices using case-methodology;

  • Section 4: innovative teaching and learning practices using research-based methods;

  • Section 5: innovative teaching and learning practices using learning space design;

  • Section 6: innovative teaching and learning practices using modern technologies like Google glasses, augmented reality, GPS, etc.;

  • Section 7: innovative teaching and learning practices using business practice and fieldwork;

  • Section 8: innovative teaching and learning practices using art, language, music, and culture;

  • Section 9: innovative teaching and learning practices using other reflective methodologies.

The book will be published worldwide by Libri Publishing Ltd., Oxfordshire, UK. You will get credited as an author of the innovative teaching and learning practice you submit. All submissions are double-blind reviewed, reviewed by collegial work groups, and undergo editorial reviews.

 

YOUR SUBMISSION

Submit a 10-page chapter documenting your INNOVATIVE TEACHING AND LEARNING PRACTICE IN HIGHER EDUCATION. Use the TEMPLATE which is downloadable from this website. It is important that your documentation is clear and descriptive. Think of your chapter as a formative description, which enables readers of the BOOK to learn from your example and try your teaching and learning innovation themselves.

The deadline for submitting your INNOVATIVE TEACHING AND LEARNING PRACTICE for double-blind review is March 19, 2018.

Reviewers will refer to the following questions when reviewing your INNOVATIVE TEACHING AND LEARNING PRACTICE:

  • Is your practice showing a clear case of innovative teaching and learning in higher education?

    • It is important that your teaching and learning practice is both innovative and inspiring. We wish to publish a book which inspires readers to take action and start innovating themselves.

  • Is your documented practice of innovative teaching and learning clear, compelling and concise?

    • It is a must that the readers will be able to follow your innovative teaching and learning practice in such detail that they can implement a similar innovative teaching and learning practice in their own university settings.

Explanation of fee-structure. LiHE operates with an all-inclusive symposium package, contrary to other conference organisers, who charge you for individual activities such as workshops, banquet, social tours, etc. We believe that the LiHE-model is fairer, because you know what you get, so you are not surprised with extra costs during the symposium. With the LiHE-model you know exactly what your symposium budget is *before* you go, so you can apply for funding. Compared to other conferences, we also find that the LiHE-model is less expensive.

LiHE also guarantees you a worldwide primary publication in a rigorously reviewed international book from a recognised British publishing house.
