A good selection of strategies linked to practica based research designed to take tutors forward in their own personal and professional devleopment
Excellent book. interesting and informative
Comprehensive text which makes it easy to follow and the approaches are fundamental to understanding ways forward in teaching and learning situations.
excellent oversight into teaching and learning gives clear breakdown of skills and theory
Real case studies and scenarios that students are able to relate to. Very good for the Primary Ed and Supporting Learning modules.
Although an informative book, the content does not align with the module that I was considering it for. I would however consider it for future modules for which the content is more relevant.
This is a must read for anybody who wishes to work in the education sector. t has proven to be invaluable in my studies and highly recommended.
