Higher education prepares students for a professional life through

university. The book has to inspire readers to engage their students
in new ways of learning.

The handbook will document all inspiring types of innovative teaching
and learning practices in Higher Education.

All submissions are double-blind reviewed, reviewed by collegial work
groups, and undergoes editorial reviews.

YOUR SUBMISSION
Submit a 3-5 paged documentation of your INNOVATIVE TEACHING AND
LEARNING PRACTICE. It is important that your documentation is clear

example and try your teaching and learning innovation themselves.

The deadline for submitting your INNOVATIVE TEACHING AND LEARNING

Reviewers will refer to the following questions when reviewing your

- Is your documented practice showing a clear case of innovative
teaching and learning practice in higher education?
- It is important that your teaching and learning practice is both
innovative and inspiring
- Is your documented practice of innovative teaching and learning

Explanation of fee-structure. LiHE operates with an all-inclusive
symposium package, contrary to other conference organisers, who charge
you for individual activities. We believe that the LiHE-model is
fairer, because you know what you get, all is inclusive, so you are
not surprised with extra charges during the symposium. With the
LiHE-model you know exactly what your symposium budget is *before* you
go, so you can apply for funding. Compared to other conferences, we
also find that the LiHE-model is less expensive.
