About this book

This book is the first of three edited volumes designed to reconceptualize teaching and learning in higher education through a critical lens, with this inaugural publication focusing on the fundamentals behind the experience. Chapter authors explore recent research on the cognitive science behind teaching and learning, dispel myths on the process, and provide updates to the application of traditional learning theories within the modern, diverse university. Through reviews of fundamental theories of teaching and learning, together with specific classroom practices, this volume applies social justice principles that have been traditionally seen as belonging to K-12 or adult education to higher education.

Reviews

“This is the first in an exciting three-volume set that integrates teaching and learning theory with social justice education to address structural inequities in classroom and co-curricular contexts in higher education; as such, it represents a significant contribution to the fields of teaching and learning, faculty development, student affairs leadership, and social justice education.”
Diane E. Boyd, Associate Dean of Faculty Development and Executive Director of the Development Center, Furman University, USA
