There are many books on teaching and assessment at higher educational level, both scholarly reviews of academic practice and pragmatic guidance books offering advice to novices and others on how to be an effective student-centred academic. So why write another? My aim here is to use the best of the scholarship underpinning teaching and learning in universities in the last half-century or more while at the same time taking account of the changing nature of the student body, higher education institutions and potentially of learning itself. However, my particular ambition in this volume is to do so from a global perspective, recognising that many extant texts about tertiary teaching are written from the perspective of a single nation, or a very limited group of nations, usually within highly-advantaged, commonly English-speaking nations. What I have sought to do here is draw on good practice from six continents, supported by a framework of pedagogic discussion and review, which is designed to be of highly practical value to educators worldwide.
