A book co-edited by London Met’s Professor Digby Warren has recently been published in its second edition, with half the chapters (co)authored by London Met academic staff.  

Entitled Enhancing Teaching Practice in Higher Education and co-edited with Dr Helen Pokorny, University Campus St Albans, this book integrates a wide body of theory and pedagogical research to enrich and empower teaching in universities, with a focus on transformational practice and education for social justice.

In this fully updated second edition, readers are provided with ideas and practical strategies drawn from literature and real-life experience across a range of academic disciplines.

This second edition includes:

  • Two new chapters on: inspiring learning through technologies, and holistic and creative pedagogies;
  • Approaches to decolonising the curriculum and working with student diversity and partnership;
  • Innovations in learning environments including responses to the pandemic, university writing and developing learning through, and for, work; 
  • A new feature: case studies in every chapter to illustrate theoretical ideas across disciplines.

Professor Warren is Co-Director of London Met’s Higher Education Research Group (HERG). The Group aims to foster connections across the Centre for Teaching Enhancement (CTE), Schools, disciplines and professional services staff engaged in higher education research internally, externally and in international settings – through the sharing of ideas, knowledge and expertise. HERG aims to build external and international networks for the development of research into higher education in multi-disciplinary contexts.

Enhancing Teaching Practice in Higher Education is available from Sage in hard and electronic copies.
