Although emerging technologies (ETs) are becoming popular for teaching, learning and research in higher education, the relationship between their use and transformative effect on higher education remains largely unexplored. Thus, many of the current conceptions view ETs as tools in 'how to' manuals, remaining at the level of simplistic discussions that are generally under-theorised. This edited collection seeks to fill this gap by providing a more nuanced view, locating higher education pedagogical practice at the intersection of ETs, authentic learning (AL) and activity systems. In so doing, this book provides accessible explanations of each of these areas, followed by practical examples and case studies drawn from a wide range of contexts, which illustrate how such a convergence has the potential to influence transformative teaching and learning practices in the higher education sector.
