Having worked as a practitioner in lifelong learning myself for many years, I feel most grateful to the author and the publisher for their painstaking effort in bringing out such a resourceful handbook for the emerging professional community of lifelong learning with a focus on curriculum studies and practice. Reviewing this book, I have personally obtained much useful knowledge and techniques which could well be reintroduced into training programmes for adult education and lifelong learning practitioners, not merely in the context of the UK but also in other parts of the world.
Right content for the course
A very useful book in getting the bottom of what curriculum is. Nicely laid out and easy to use. I have dipped in and out of this book over the last few weeks and I have found it very interesting, easy to read and understand when I am so time poor.
An excellent resource for both teachers and students.
An ideal addition to the Curriculum module on the Diploma as well as useful for developing an understanding of the nature and development in curriculum design and impact on learners
A simple to read book that helps students to understand and teachers to deliver the underpinning knowledge for the unit - Highly recommended.
The Learning Matters books are a great supplemental read. The book is easily accessible with some good supportive elements for use within assignments.
This book have been used within the Diploma in Education and Training module delivery. It is an essential resource for teachers/trainers when researching and developing curriculum design.
This book is so easy to read and easy to find the information you need as well.
This book is great for new teachers and a big help with the curriculum assignment too
Very good for Unit 6 of DTLLS year 2
