At a time when teaching in higher education is increasingly and rightly scrutinised, the need for support for new teachers from all backgrounds in all areas of academic teaching practice is critical. Teachers in HE are required to be practitioners of teaching and scholars of teaching, as well as disciplinary experts, and this book provides the breadth required for early career teachers embarking on a new academic career.
