Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"... it could well become a classic text in this field. It is a lucid introduction to the basic concepts in teaching and learning, organised round the central concept of understanding." - John Nisbet, Honorary Research Fellow and Professor of Education, University of Aberdeen, UK

"I am genuine in my opinion that every academic development unit in each UK university will make this a key-reader for their teaching. In many cases it is likely to become the course textbook for professional development." - Dr David Hay, Senior Lecturer in Higher Education, King's College London, UK

"This book will be greatly welcomed and will provide an excellent edition to the literature – and one that has a strong capacity to make a real difference. It presents an authoritative overview of relevant theory – including cutting edge developments in which the author has played a lead role." - Peter Davies, Professor of Education Policy and Director, Institute for Education Policy Research, Staffordshire University, UK
