50 Teaching and Learning Approaches
Simple, easy and effective ways to engage learners and measure their progress


October 2019 | 160 pages | Learning Matters
This reader-friendly and accessible text introduces 50 teaching and learning approaches and explores how they work in practice by taking an honest look at the advantages and disadvantages of each one. For each approach, the authors include in-practice examples taken from a range of teaching contexts. The text also offers clear support for teachers on how they can assess learners' progress when using each approach. This focus on the need to see and measure the learning that is taking place supports the reader to concentrate on the learning and not be distracted with the newness of different approaches.
