Using the work of Lewis Elton as a starting point, leading researchers and practitioners in the field examine and reflect on different aspects of the changing nature of higher eduction. These experts:

* outline changes in higher education and ways of thinking about teaching and learning over the last thirty years.
* analyse the development of students¿ learning 
* examine the development of learning technologies in higher education

Aimed at staff and educational developers, and those studying postgraduate qualifications in learning and teaching in higher education, this is an insightful framework through which to understand and question on-going developments in higher education.
