The event will take place between 5:30pm – 8:00pm on Wednesday 30 November at Edinburgh Napier University, Merchiston Campus (B32). The evening will feature drinks reception, panel discussions and student award ceremony. If you would like to join us, please click on the Innovations in Learning and Teaching RSVP link.

Innovations in Learning and Teaching showcases the latest research and new teaching approaches in higher education. The editors worked closely with MSc Publishing students at Edinburgh Napier University to produce this book that exemplifies real innovation and integrates academic theory with practice. Some photos of the newly published title are below.

The current MSc Publishing students have been continuing the work of last year’s class on the promotion of this unique title, culminating with an exciting launch next week. Working closely with the esteemed contributors and editors, the launch will celebrate the achievements of those involved – past and present.
