Innovations in Higher Education Teaching and Learning
The debate around how to maximize the use of technology in education is ongoing, and embedded in the argument that successful inculcation of knowledge cannot happen only by improving the curriculum. But what role does technology play in humanizing higher education? How can it facilitate the kind of all-round development, beyond the classroom, which allows students to create a positive impact on social welfare and community wellbeing? 

The authors of this volume address the humaneness that surrounds the world of technology in education. By highlighting the use of emerging technologies in pedagogy and drawing on real-life case studies, they address the ongoing debate that technology brings a positive effect on education and beyond. More important than ever as mankind faces unprecedented challenges to classroom-based education, and the demand for technology grows, the authors demonstrate how technology continues to fulfil the challenges of creating a more democratic educational environment.

'While providing perspectives from around the world, this highly useful text more specifically presents a holistic understanding of how technology facilitates the kind of human-centered learning teachers, administrators, and students need and deserve. Founded on classroom-based experiences, the authors take an in-depth view of emerging technological innovations such as artificial intelligence and various forms of virtual reality in addition to more commonly incorporated design practices such as video-based conferencing, make those technologies and corresponding practices understandable, and present ways of both critically engaging with and humanizing those technologies and practices. Though most directly related to higher education, the content presented is highly applicable in primary, secondary, and two-year college contexts as well, which is especially important in this time of remote learning now ushered in by pandemic realities.' - Galen Leonhardy, Professor of English, Black Hawk College, USA
