INNOVATIVE TEACHING PRACTICES FOR IMPROVING STUDENT LEARNING IN HIGHER EDUCATION

N. Amrous

Ecole des Sciences de l'Information (Information Science School) (MOROCCO)
Education is considered as the most powerful and effective instrument of social progress and reform and innovative teaching practice is the only way to enhance the quality of our education.

This paper argues that Higher Education, more particularly, has the important task of preparing leaders for different walks of life-social, political, intellectual, cultural, scientific & technological. Thus, with the help of new teaching practices, modern methodology, education brings about changes in the society.

Indeed, the higher education sector has undergone many pressures for change over the last few decades, caused in particular by the massification and diversity of students, the impact of digital technologies, as well as the changes in the labor market which require quality higher education, adapted to the rapidly changing socio-professional environment.

Higher education institutions, faced with new challenges and issues, are forced to adapt their teaching methods and learning orientations in favor of greater performance in Higher education.They need to ensure that the education they offer meets the expectations of students and the requirements of employers, both today and for the future.

New challenges of the 21st century demand renewed Pedagogy – Innovative Pedagogy, capable of rethinking the existing educational practice and theory, and offering the original models of constructing innovative Education in a perspective of lifelong learning. It is an essential challenge for inventing the future of our societies. What is learned, how it is taught, must be transformed to respond to the social and economic needs of students and society. The outdated, transmission model, through which teachers transmit factual knowledge to students via lectures and textbooks, remains the dominant approach to compulsory education in much of the world, yet it is not the most effective way to teach 21st-century skills.

Innovative teaching practices will lead to a knowledge society in which the creative and intellectual abilities of students will allow them to meet the goals of transformation and development, empowered them to be able to withstand the global challenges of the 21st century. Support for quality teaching can be manifested through a wide range of activities that are likely to improve the quality of the teaching process, of the programme content, as well as the learning conditions of students.

The present paper aims to highlight effective methods and Innovative teaching practices for Improving Student Learning in Higher education. It discusses the nature of pedagogical innovations in higher education, the factors that may have an accelerating or inhibiting impact on the deployment of innovative pedagogical practices in the Higher education context. And offers key elements which contribute to the development of this new pedagogy. And finally, some lines of action are suggested to the actors concerned who wish to embark on this path.
