While Active Learning Classrooms, or ALCs, offer rich new environments for learning, they present many new challenges to faculty because, among other things, they eliminate the room's central focal point and disrupt the conventional seating plan to which faculty and students have become accustomed. The importance of learning how to use these classrooms well and to capitalize on their special features is paramount. The potential they represent can be realized only when they facilitate improved learning outcomes and engage students in the learning process in a manner different from traditional classrooms and lecture halls. This book provides an introduction to ALCs, briefly covering their history and then synthesizing the research on these spaces to provide faculty with empirically based, practical guidance on how to use these unfamiliar spaces effectively. Among the questions this book addresses are: * How can instructors mitigate the apparent lack of a central focal point in the space? * What types of learning activities work well in the ALCs and take advantage of the affordances of the room? * How can teachers address familiar classroom-management challenges in these unfamiliar spaces? * If assessment and rapid feedback are critical in active learning, how do they work in a room filled with circular tables and no central focus point? * How do instructors balance group learning with the needs of the larger class? * How can students be held accountable when many will necessarily have their backs facing the instructor? * How can instructors evaluate the effectiveness of their teaching in these spaces? This book is intended for faculty preparing to teach in or already working in this new classroom environment; for administrators planning to create ALCs or experimenting with provisionally designed rooms; and for faculty developers helping teachers transition to using these new spaces.

Higher education is in a current state of flux and uncertainty, with profound changes being shaped largely by the imperatives of global neoliberalism. Changing Pedagogical Spaces in Higher Education forms a unique addition to the literature and includes significant practical pointers in developing pedagogical strategies, interventions and practices that seek to address the complexities of identity formations, difference, inequality and misrecognition. Drawing on research studies based across California, England, Italy, Portugal and Spain, this book analyses complex pedagogical re/formations across competing discourses of gender, diversity, equity, global neoliberalism and transformation, and aims: to critique and reconceptualise widening participation practices in higher education to consider the complex intersections between difference, equity, global neoliberalism and transformation to analyse the intersections of identity formations, social inequalities and pedagogical practices to contribute to broader widening participation policy agendas to develop an analysis of gendered experiences, intersected by race and class, of higher education practices and relations. Changing Pedagogical Spaces in Higher Education will speak to those concerned with how theory relates to everyday practices and development of teaching in higher education and those who are interested in theorising about pedagogies, identities and inequalities in higher education. Engaging readers in a dialogue of the relationship between theory and practice, this thought-provoking and challenging text will be of particular interest to researchers, academic developers and policy-makers in the field of higher education studies.

This book is an essential guide if you are working in higher education and seeking professional recognition for your role in teaching and supporting learning, and particularly if you are seeking a fellowship with the UK Higher Education Academy (HEA). The book maps a range of key themes against the United Kingdom Professional Standards Framework (UKPSF) and invites you to engage with its 'dimensions of practice'. Its distinctive features include: Explicit links to the UKPSF and practical advice on how to put together a scholarly narrative account of your academic practice in order to seek fellowship status with Higher Education Academy (HEA) An exploration of the contested nature of academic practice, inviting you to interrogate how this can be negotiated within your own learning and teaching context Contributions from leading scholars in the field, practitioners writing about their roles and experiences, and the views of students. Each chapter interweaves insightful commentary with case studies, practical examples and opinion pieces, as well as debate pieces and 'Dear Lecturer' comments from students. Each chapter also includes helpful extracts from successful HEA fellowship applications, demonstrating how the content of the book can be used in a practical way to help you put together your own application. If you are following an individual or institution accredited route to fellowship and/or studying a taught course (such as a PG Cert HE) then this book is an indispensable tool to help you think critically about the UKPSF dimensions of practice and academic practice in general. John Lea is Head of Academic Professional Development at Canterbury Christ Church University, UK.
