About Engaging with Learning in Higher Education
This book satisfies a need for broader scholarly writing on an increasingly important and studied area of higher education learning, teaching and quality assurance. It explores student engagement from a number of contexts and provides a contemporary analysis of practice and research on student engagement from various parts of the world, several disciplines and across the lifetime of the student.

Split into four sections the book examines the background to and nature of student engagement, related pedagogies, examples of student engagement in context and finally, the implications for policy.
