Beyond Transmission – Innovations in University Teaching

Higher education today finds itself confronting many challenges, economic, technological and social. Universities’ reliance on ‘transmissive education’, with the lecture as the dominant vehicle for many of their processes, is being thrown into ever greater question. Beyond Transmission – Innovations in University Teaching respond to higher education challenges by championing a shift to a constructivist approach. From five continents and reflecting ten national mindsets, the contributors represent a broad cross-section of educational disciplines. They argue that innovatory teaching approaches are essential if teachers are to appeal to people’s mindsets entering higher education today and present detailed examples of new ways of instilling in students a love of and ability for learning.

Beyond Transmission – Innovations in University Teaching states that any innovatory teaching approach that goes beyond transmission requires consideration of three essential factors: vision, process and practice. The anthology’s contributions are organised around each of these imperatives in turn.

The vision for higher education is when teachers develop their students as producers rather than as customers. Discussion of process explores the use of online tools to collect and store evidence of students’ learning, but these are found to be even more valuable in fostering learning development. Teaching practice is addressed in the final chapters, emphasising how innovative practices have achieved improved outcomes and give examples of achieving results through practical tools and techniques.

Beyond Transmission – Innovations in University Teaching, which is written by the International Academic Association for Enhancement of Learning in Higher Education, shows that across the world an increasing number of faculty members are actively concerned with innovating in their own educational practice. It highlights that, although technology has an important role to play in innovation, technology is not a sine qua non and presents some valuable pointers to the future of learning in higher education.
