Overview

The fourth volume in the series, Educational Innovation in Economics and Business, brings together sixteen articles to reflect the way in which educational thinking in higher education has undergone a rapid change.
The book is divided into four sections. The first section 'Learning Objectives and Programme Structures' addresses the theme of the book. It examines how to ensure that the objectives and structures employed are appropriate in the modern environment. The second section 'The Structure of the Learning Environment' is a continuation of the first section but focuses on how the learning environment is designed to facilitate the student's learning. The third section 'Information Technology in the Learning Environment' contains two articles examining the use of Information Technology as a learning tool. The final section 'Evaluating Student Skills' deals with the important issue of developing the student's skills and how they can be evaluated.
This volume addresses issues faced by teachers in higher and further education, but also those involved in programmes of study for continuing professional development.
