The contributors reflect on current thinking and policy surrounding learning and teaching, and what it means to be a teacher today. Looking at the practice of teaching in a wider context allows you to explore some of the issues you will face, and the evolving expectations of your role in a policy-led environment. The book focuses on core areas of debate including:
- education across different contexts and settings
- teaching in an inclusive environment
- Continuing Professional Development (CPD) for practitioners
Each chapter follows the same accessible format. They contain case studies and vignettes providing examples and scenarios for discussion; introduction and summary boxes listing key issues and concepts explored in the chapter; key questions for discussion reflection; and further reading.
This essential text can be used across undergraduate and postgraduate courses, including BEd/BA degrees, initial teacher-training courses, and Masters in Education programs.
