Overview

Global developments directly or indirectly affect teaching and learning in higher education. In this new era of telecommunication revolution and growing international cooperation, it is time for university and college teachers to talk across national boundaries about teaching. In this volume of New Directions for Teaching and Learning, contributors from around the world describe issues they are currently facing in their teaching practice. National differences are put into the context of universal themes. Faculty are responding to demands for social development and to pressures from the world of work. They are influenced by government policies and financial constraints. Regardless of the context within which they practice, faculty still struggle with the familiar issues of how to learn about teaching, how to juggle teaching and research, and how to evaluate both teaching and learning. The international perspectives presented in this volume give readers a fresh outlook on everyday concerns and introduce new thoughts on teaching and learning. This is the 72nd issue of the quarterly journal New Directions for Teaching and Learning.
