Teaching and Learning at the University: Practices and Transformations
The focus of this book is the analysis of transformative changes and new teaching and learning perspectives at the university level. It summarizes the research results of an international team of scholars, and details the use of different theoretical approaches to explore change processes in the cases of Estonian, Swedish and Finnish universities. The case studies gathered here explain how organisation-wide changes might affect teaching practice, teaching and learning culture, professional identities, and academic career paths at universities. The book reflects both theoretical and analytical approaches, and will be of interest for all scholars, academic developers, professionals, practitioners and students interested in professional development at the university, organizational changes and higher education policies.
