Innovations in Higher Education Teaching and Learning


Humanistic education developed several decades ago as a reaction to unhealthy environment and exposure to detrimental condition in education. This book has authors from across the globe writing about theories concerning humanizing of pedagogy, exploring the impact of service learning among undergraduates and emphasizing the development of responsibility and to promote critical thinking, through pedagogical appropriate interventions. The intention of this book is to contribute to an understanding of an educational shift that is prevalent in our society toward creating humanizing conditions though pedagogy, that will seek co-existence within the lines of policy while influencing system-wide change.
