Learning and teaching in higher education

Tertiary education is diverse both across and within institutions. Approaches to pedagogy need to support and encourage the independence of learners while providing discipline specific training. Research on learning and teaching in higher education uses diverse methodological approaches to investigate the opportunities and challenges of new educational technologies, more diverse student bodies, rapid disciplinary evolution and the growth of cross-disciplinary fields.
