Placement Learning, Citizenship and Employability
- Publication Date: 01-04-2010
The book is the outcome of what has been a very creative period in the development of progressive pedagogies in university teaching.
This creative and experimental period has been promoted by a series of government funding programmes to support innovation in teaching and learning in HE. Projects discussed in this book have benefited from the Fund for the Development of Teaching and Learning and the monies provided under the Centres for Excellence in Teaching and Learning programme.
The concern to develop opportunities for active learning and engagement of one form or another have become increasingly prevalent in higher education institutions on both sides of the Atlantic. In particular, recent years have witnessed a significant growth in the academic literature on experiential learning, simulations, community engagement and graduate employability.
The chapters collected in this volume investigate innovative attempts to address these issues and associated concerns in the subject areas of politics and international relations.Publisher: Sociology, Anthropology, Politics (C-SAP) - The Higher Education Academy
