Overview

This book offers a range of practical methods for teaching and facilitating learning geared to the day-to-day realities encountered by professionals in the human services. Drawing on the literature of adult education and on a wealth of practical examples from different kinds of professional practice—including nursing and medicine, community education, social work, and psychology—Farquhason provides a wide range of conceptual models for improving teaching in human service practice. He provides professionals with the tools to identify the broad variety of teaching opportunities that are present in their daily practice, and he shows them how they can improve the effectiveness of that teaching. Farquharson also includes practical advice on assessing learning needs, designing motivating learning experiences, and improving facilitation skills so that people can become partners in and directors of their own learning.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Here is a book I have been waiting for for a long time a clearly written, theoretically sound, and up-to-date helpmate for workers at all levels. Farquharson's enthusiasm for the idea that the most potent tool in human service practice is the facilitation of lifelong learning is contagious." (Malcolm S. Knowles, professor emeritus, North Carolina State University)
Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Barbara M. Sylvia, PhD, RN (Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences)
Description: This new book focuses on strategies and the facilitation of learning relative to the human service professions. Topics of teaching and learning as a component of professional practice, clients as learners, development of learning relationships, facilitation of group learning, assessment of learning needs, teaching strategies, resources and activities, and evaluation of learning are covered in the nine chapters. Numerous examples of teaching situations from the human service professional practice enhance the content of this introductory-level textbook.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a practical guide to the implementation of teaching and the facilitation of learning within the practice of health service professionals using an adult education perspective.
Audience: This book is targeted primarily to people working in a wide range of human service professions who occupy strategic helping roles that provide them the opportunity to teach and to facilitate learning when people may be most open to the learning process. A secondary audience may be individuals engaged in preprofessional training for these same human service professions.
Features: The overall organization of the content, including the numerous examples from practice, figures, and references, are features that enhance the readability and practical application in the human service practice setting.
Assessment: This introductory level textbook provides a good broad overview of major aspects of teaching and learning from the adult education and lifelong learning perspectives and relates them to the numerous teaching opportunities that occur in human services practice. The overall design and presentation of content facilitates ease of reading. The content is general in nature and covers most current concepts in teaching and learning. Additional references are provided for readers wishing to pursue selected topics in greater depth.
