Summary
"The student learning experience in modern higher education settings is changing rapidly. Students no longer have a linear approach to education and increasingly their expectations are that there will be flexibility and support embedded in their courses. Consequently institutions need to have a holistic approach to enhancing student learning. The significance of the total learning environment - academic, physical, virtual, support - to the student experience is emerging; however, there has been little study of the impact of the new learning environments on student learning behaviours, in particular on support for learners." "This timely book will act as a strategic planning tool by uncovering models that will allow practitioners to reflect on their own organizational contexts. It will also help to raise the profile of learning support within institutions by keeping library managers, student service managers, academics and organizational leaders up to date with policy and developments; and, by interfacing with the global skills agenda, will be of interest to a wide range of staff including support professionals, educators and stakeholders. With its bite size chunks of information showing the diversity of the LIS sector and its opportunities for career development, it will also be a helpful text for students."--BOOK JACKET
