Tertiary Level Education: Theory, Classroom Teaching and Creativity
I cordially invite your research papers for the forthcoming book entitled as Tertiary Level Education: Theory, Classroom Teaching and Creativity. Scholarly and unpublished research papers are invited from scholars/faculty/researchers/writers from all over the world for this volume.
The volume will be published with an ISBN (International Standard Book Number) by a renowned publisher from New Delhi, India.
Thematic Focus of the Volume:
From the very beginning, we strongly believe that adult’s motivation in learning increases when they are given the chance of finding answers to the questions about which they are curious. We equally believe that as educators and parents, we can all contribute to student’s development by allowing them to interact with various sources of information along with innumerous tools that can enrich their lives and perspectives. The roots of this book can be found in my eagerness to learn more about the learning itself. I have decided to separate the book into three main parts because each part is an important facet of student’s learning. In the first part, the author wishes the scholars to discuss and write on the fundamentals of learning at tertiary level, cognitive development theory, socio-cultural theory which explain the relationship between learning and development with nuances that are important to educators at work. In the second part, the author wants scholars to scrutinize some of the most pertinent issues related to classroom teaching at tertiary level. The last part of the book is allocated to creativity, a traditionally well-known reality of all human experience although one that is not officially taught in formal teaching. While explaining the theoretical bases of creativity, the author wishes the scholars to focus on innovations in learning and teaching.
We are well aware that there is not the best way of learning or teaching but we can hope that we will always improve the conditions and contexts where we teach.
