This report presents a collection of papers to review the thinking and research done in the area of higher education pedagogy. Each of the papers explores the new forms of teaching, learning and assessment for an interactive world, and presents the various innovative aspects of higher education pedagogy. The Introduction provides an overview of what the future holds for the educators and students of institutions of higher education, followed by a summary of the papers presented at the Roundtable Workshop.
Chapter 1 examines how the applications of ICT and the availability of a digital environment has led to innovative practices such as OERs, OEPs, social media and MOOCs, and made it possible to improve the quality and increase access of higher education. It examines these issues against a backdrop of the historical developments in the theoretical bases of the learning processes that have been integrated into the teaching-learning strategies.
Chapter 2 provides an incremental and robust professional development programme that incorporates continuous professional development which encourages academics to embrace learning and teaching approaches that have sound pedagogical foundations and address learner needs.
Chapter 3 discusses the major role of assessment in student learning, sound design approaches, and ways that assessment can be structured to recognise student diversity and prepare students for success in the world of the 21st century.
Chapter 4 reports on a range of initiatives that have been undertaken at the University of Nottingham, Malaysia to enhance student involvement in teaching and learning processes.
Chapter 5 presents the trends in technology-supported teaching learning processes and the approaches used in higher education institutions to add value to the knowledge creation, curation, distribution and sharing with their learners, as well as to support learners through their academic life with the institution.
