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.
