This best practice guide to teaching in the Further Education and Skills sector, and professional organisational learning contexts, examines the key concepts underpinning effective teaching and learning and combines this with case studies which demonstrate meaningful connections between theory and practice.

Each chapter also contains discussion questions, learning activities and reflective points, allowing you to further engage with key research and relate it to your own teaching.

Offering pragmatic advice on learning design, support and delivery, coverage includes:

  •         Identifying learning needs and objectives
  •         Selecting and developing appropriate content
  •         Using technology to enhance learning
  •         Assessment, evaluation and reflection

This is an indispensable resource for anyone preparing to teach in Further Education, current Higher Education lecturers and work-based learning trainers in private and public-sector organisations.

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.
