SANTIAGO, CHILE, February 1, 2018- We are delighted to announce the launch of a series of books: Innovating in Higher Education: Key Experiences in Latin America and the Caribbean, 2016-2017.

Laspau and Universidad de Chile have published a series of books on best practices in teaching aimed at promoting quality learning for students in higher education. The three-volume series is available in Spanish and Portuguese at this time.

Organized around three central themes, the combined volumes consist of 52 unique cases and present an array of best practices based on methodologies, classroom settings, curriculum and assessment, technology implementation, professional development, and diversity & inclusion. The cases are based on the experiences of faculty from Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Cuba, Panama, Peru, and Uruguay at their institutions.

 

 

In March, Laspau will announce the call for proposals for submissions to the fourth volume in the series. We welcome proposals from faculty, scholars, administrators who would like to share experiences of innovation in their university teaching that may contribute to the advances of teaching practices in the region.
