AISHE Academic Practice Guides

The All Ireland Society for Higher Education (AISHE) is pleased to bring you a new series of booklets, each of which offers guidance on a particular theme, for practitioners in higher education. Entitled the AISHE Academic Practice Guides, the series is designed to support the development of teaching and learning in practice.

The booklets are written by practitioners, for practitioners. Based on experience and scholarship, each guide offers an overview of the particular topic to help readers situate the experiences presented in other sections of the booklet.

Case studies or examples of practice from contributors’ higher education experience are presented and, finally, each booklet suggests resources that the reader may find helpful in their own practice.

We wish to acknowledge the National Forum for the Enhancement of Teaching and Learning in Higher Education for supporting this publication series.

We also acknowledge the work of all those colleagues, networks and communities of practice who contributed to the project through writing, providing case studies and co-ordinating contributions in order to bring the series to publication.

The series is made of five guides, available to download by clicking on the icons to the right.

  1. An Introduction to Higher Education Writing Centres
  2. Promoting Inclusive Learning Environments for Nursing and Midwifery Students on Work Placements
  3. An Introduction to Module Design
  4. An Introduction to Enquiry/Problem-based Learning
  5. An Introduction to Writing in the Disciplines

We hope you find the guides a useful addition to your practice.

This series is dedicated to the memory of our dear friend and colleague, Dr John Panter, 15 April 1941 – 13 November 2015. Suaimhneas síoraí dá anam dílis.
