Maximising student learning gain

WithGraham Gibbs

Professor Graham Gibbs has been an influential figure in the development of learning and teaching in UK higher education over the past twenty years or so. His research, publications and active engagement with learning and teaching at a wide range of institutions across the sectors have placed him in a unique position to offer a view of how to maximise student learning gain. Professor Gibbs’ work is internationally followed and widely respected. In this chapter, to end Part 2 of the Handbook, the editors have invited him to provide our readers with an overview of key aspects of the learning experience that are crucial to ensure that students derive maximum learning gain from their university education. The three case studies he presents are from universities that are particularly well known to him.
