This collection of chapters reflects how a group of educators can look through their respective lenses to discuss common issues of concern for educators and learners alike. Some of the writers speak of their students’ learning through the manner in which they have constructed learning activities to elicit new understanding, while others have explored the idea of enabling students to develop an independent voice.

Each contribution reveals how the role of an educator is not only to focus on their own responsibilities in terms of content and methodology, but also to enable students to focus upon what they need to do to understand the discipline they will enter as a professional later in life.

In this multi-disciplinary book we find committed academics who not only teach within their discipline, but are also able to relate the pedagogy and learning of their discipline to the broader context of being part a wider learning community.
