    "[Genetically Modified Organisms: A Scientific-Political Dialogue on a Meaningless Meme is] presents the debate associated with introducing GMOs as a traditional debate between science and progress against dogma. After reading it, I hope that science will win for the sake of all of us."

The Teaching and Learning Challenges of 21st-Century Higher Education: Prioritising Pedagogy

Pedagogy is at the heart of the higher education student experience. This book explores pedagogy in a range of higher education (HE) practices and draws from the expertise of a range of professionals working in higher education across three countries (the UK, China and Malaysia), thus giving voice to a number of debates around teaching and learning practice in higher education from different cultural perspectives. The volume also explores challenges that have arisen as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic which has forced higher education practitioners to reconceptualise pedagogy. It provides insights into different approaches to teaching in 21st-century higher education and as such has a practical focus that will appeal to HE practitioners who are keen to enhance their own practice and, as a consequence, student outcomes.


Dr Tina Byrom is an educational professional with considerable experience across both compulsory and post-compulsory education settings. Her PhD, completed at the University of Nottingham, UK, focused on interventions that support students who go into higher education from disadvantaged backgrounds. Social justice influences much of her research work, and she is the author of numerous publications, including seven book chapters and six journal articles, that explore notions of “fit” within higher education. She co-authored a book titled Young and Homeless: Exploring the Education, Life Experiences and Aspirations of Homeless Youth, and participated in a Cabinet Office-funded evaluation of interventions used to support homeless young people returning to education. Currently working in enhanced academic practice, she leads a team of educational professionals who deliver developmental opportunities for staff to enhance their teaching and learning practices.
