Enhancing Teaching and Learning in Higher Education in the United Arab Emirates: Reflections from the Classroom captures the endeavours that professors from different disciplines at the American University of Sharjah (AUS) have undergone to enhance the learning opportunities for their students. All the authors have deliberately chosen to approach teaching with inquiry and enthusiasm to do this. In every chapter, the authors take a scholarly, reflective approach to explain and examine the innovative techniques and methods which they have employed to identify the needs of the students in order to offer opportunities for them to better understand the subject material. Through topics ranging from introducing active learning techniques to examining the effect of technology on the learning process, the authors describe, evaluate and reflect upon their teaching practice.
