Having shown this to a few of the students on the course they felt that this would not be of benefit to them on this course.

This book indetifies key concepts and then sets about to define then. A case study and further reading is included for each concept allowing the reader to follow up any concepts of interest.

This is a very good resource for all who are involved in higher or further education. It is ideal for adult students who are studying for Teaching Certificates or Degrees in Education. Each chapter is succinctlyl laid out and guides the reader through the main issues involved in academic study. This book would be a valuable resource for the professional nurse undertaking post-grad professional development in teaching or mentoring.

Useful reference source for undergrad nurses. Probably better for qualified nurses wanting to develop a teaching role in practice and those beginning as lecturers
