Taking Stock 2.0 book cover

A lot has changed in our understanding of and approach to teaching and learning in higher education, since the 2010 publication of Taking Stock: Research on Teaching and Learning in Higher Education. And yet, much has stayed the same (despite the current pandemic). As we approach the book’s tenth anniversary, it seems appropriate to take stock once again – of what we know now, what has changed and what further change is needed in support of deep and essential learning in our ever-changing world. These are among the issues to be covered in our new book Taking Stock 2.0: Transforming Teaching and Learning in Higher Education.

On June 10, the editors Julia Christensen Hughes, Joy Mighty, and Denise Stockley facilitated an interactive webinar, which included highlights of the original Taking Stock publication and the proposed framework for Taking Stock 2.0. In small groups, participants reflected on what has changed over the past 10 years and provided their insights and lived experiences regarding the most pertinent issues in higher education today and in the future.

It is our intention that this second book will support the work of the Society for Teaching and Learning in Higher Education (STLHE) and the higher education community for years to come. The publication target date is spring 2021, just in time for the 40th Anniversary of STLHE and our conference in Ottawa.
