As Memories Fade
In the evolving landscape of higher education, this book is a vital resource which addresses a fundamental concern: how to effectively enhance student learning outcomes and adequately prepare students for their professional futures. The book presents a central model for enhancing student learning outcomes, the ESLO model, which is a meticulously crafted framework designed to optimise the academic experience and outcomes for students in higher education. Born out of a pressing need to address the evolving challenges in academia, the model delineates the education process into three pivotal stages:
1) Designing – effective teaching and learning strategies to meet relevant learning outcomes
2) Doing – executing these strategies through teaching and learning activities
3) Diagnosing – the results through rigorous evaluation and assessment.
Each stage represents a critical step in the instructional journey, ensuring that teaching and learning methodologies are tailored to students’ unique needs, effectively implemented, and subsequently assessed for their impact. The development of the ESLO model is a response to the growing demand for a more systematic, evidence-based approach in education – one that prioritises student learning outcomes and prepares students effectively for their future careers.
Comprising 15 chapters, the book presents a wide range of perspectives from university educators spanning four continents: Australia, Asia, Europe, and North America. Their contributions detail their systematic approaches to designing, enacting, and assessing teaching and learning activities to enhance specific learning outcomes. Through the diverse yet interconnected content of the book, readers are provided with theoretical insights and practical approaches. The emphasis is on the practical application of the ESLO model, offering valuable guidance for faculty members aiming to refine their teaching and assessment practices.
Enhancing Student Learning Outcomes in Higher Education is an inspiring read for educators dedicated to advancing their pedagogical techniques and optimising student success.
