Compass: Journal of Learning and Teaching

This issue of Compass reflects key current issues affecting Higher Education: observation of teaching, e-learning (with particular reference to flipped classrooms) and methodology designed to develop broad student skillsets to enhance employability. The issue also focuses upon ways of meeting the needs of ‘non-traditional’ students, explores a student champion approach to improving staff-to-student feedback and celebrates an occasion devoted to the creation of mobile phone apps.
