'If you are considering teaching or are new to the role, this book contains invaluable advice which will not only help you to get started but will help you to make teaching a rewarding, life-long career!'- Serena Simmons, Nottingham Trent University
Full of practical advice on lecturing, preparing for lectures, teaching aids, assessment and various exercises that are often reflective in nature. The book is interspersed with 'voice of experience' or personal advice from the authors. A friendly, useful for book for those new to their teaching role in higher education
This is an excellent source for anyone about to or currently teaching in HE. It gives great check lists for you to use to improve.
This text provides a helpful, basic introduction to a range of practices/concepts for those new to teaching in HE.
Not adopted to the programme but incredibly helpful for me personally as a lecturer, so will be recommending to my colleagues
its really good for tips on different ways to deliver things
I will recommend this to fellow academics who are learning to teach. The content is useful for theoretical essays and there is advice given on implementation of concepts in classroom practice. Most of the main teaching modes (lectures and tutorials) are covered in detail.
Would recommend this to students who are undertaking their research in educational settings, but not always appropriate given its pedagogic focus. Great for me as a lecturer, though!
A good text book. Constructive ideas in delivery of teaching; suitable for PGCE students.
A good book to read. Good and constructive ideas in the process and delivery of teaching
The book focussed on seminars and lectures, with very little on flipped classrooms, on-line or distance learning. The assessment sections were also very traditional and rather dated, focussing on exam and essay marking.
Wanted a book which was more use to teachers & students, not just academics
A very straightforward handbook about lecturing in higher education. Simple and easily accessible with some great ideas and a re-assuring tone.
A clear and engaging book. I have recommended it to other teaching areas within our institution.
An excellent introduction to Higher Education teaching and students' learning. It takes a nuanced and critical approach to Higher Education learning and teaching whilst providing research-informed reflective andragogical approaches to adult learning.
This text is a good supportive text for students in preparing their activities within a PGCert Ed. Its a helpful, how to guide, providing a useful checklist for the novice teacher in HEI. It encourages the student to try different approaches and set up theiur learning more effectively
This book keeps things simple, some good ideas many of which are common sense but easy mistakes to make when worrying about creating the perfect lectures and seminars.
Good for support reading;suitable for PGCE students.
Found the 'voice of experience' sections particularly useful.
This was a useful reference text to supplement early learning & the PGC-HE
