Series: Education in a Competitive and Globalizing World
BISAC: EDU015000

This book focuses on the challenges of academic teaching in an era of technological advances. The challenges of pedagogy and technology are an important topic in the debates of academic scholars on the instructor’s role in an era of technological progress. Have lecturers become obsolete? Will the classroom become a studio setting in which lectures will be broadcast? What is the role of collaboration in creating a multi-campus virtual university where the best lecturers teach and share their knowledge?

What are the implications of the new options created through the mediation of lecturers’ teaching materials? What are the implications for teaching practice and the learning experience, and what are the social, ethical, moral, and financial implications and the implications for infrastructure and policy-making? The contributing authors, researchers and educators from diverse disciplines and research institutions offer a fresh perspective on the changing face of teaching in higher education and its responses to contemporary challenges.
