As societies continue to respond to the grand challenges of our time, so too must Higher Education. This book explores what innovation and change could look like within Higher Education, and what could be done to facilitate it. Inspire: Learning for Teaching in Higher Education considers the grand pedagogic challenges facing the Higher Education sector, captured through a series of detailed dialogues and debates between disciplinary colleagues. Reflecting on forward-looking frameworks and exploring how they may be facilitated, each co-authored chapter platforms insights from educational experts. The focus of this book is on action, seeking to inspire those teaching, facilitating, and leading in Higher Education to bring conceptual understanding to actuality.
