ABOUT THE BOOK WE’RE GOING TO PUBLISH WORLDWIDE
The aim of higher education is to the improve knowledge, skills, and competencies of students to prepare them for their future lives and careers. For many years the dominant paradigm underlying this endeavour has been didactic teaching in lecture theatres, where one responsible teacher delivers content to students.
