Provider: AUB Press

The conference proceedings of the 4th and 5th International Conferences on Effective Teaching and Learning in Higher Education (2013–2015).

Towards Enhanced Scholarship of Teaching and Learning presents a transformative perspective on teaching and learning in higher education. This book comprises a compilation of research and practical strategies derived from the annual conferences organized by the Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL) at the American University of Beirut. Empirical investigations covering a range of topics are explored, including reflective teaching practices, perceptions of soft skills among undergraduate engineering students, the implementation of team-based learning communities, a case study on student perceptions of bilingual Arabic-English instructors, and the utilization of translation as a tool to enhance English writing.

Best practices are also examined, encompassing insights on MOOCs from both student and educator perspectives, the benefits of teacher blogging, the fostering of community-based learning, and the effective integration of technology in e-learning and pedagogy. By embracing this resource, educators, administrators, and graduate students are empowered with evidence-based approaches to elevate the quality of teaching and foster student success in higher education.
