We are delighted to announce the publication of Dr Saranne Weller’s new book Academic Practice: Developing as a Professional in Higher Education (2015, Sage).
The book explores a number of key topics that are relevant to learning and teaching at UAL including:
- connecting research and teaching
- internationalisation of the curriculum
- the digital university
- inclusive approaches to student engagement

It provides valuable insights and practical examples for staff undertaking units on the Teaching and Learning Exchange MA in Academic Practice as well as supporting colleagues to deepen their understanding of wider debates relating to current higher education policy.

a wealth of theoretical perspectives and exemplifying case studies that will both challenge readers and facilitate personal sense-making, empowering us to take ownership for the education choices we make.
