Having worked as a practitioner in lifelong learning myself for many years, I feel most grateful to the author and the publisher for their painstaking effort in bringing out such a resourceful handbook for the emerging professional community of lifelong learning with a focus on curriculum studies and practice. Reviewing this book, I have personally obtained much useful knowledge and techniques which could well be reintroduced into training programmes for adult education and lifelong learning practitioners, not merely in the context of the UK but also in other parts of the world.
Right content for the course
A very useful book in getting the bottom of what curriculum is. Nicely laid out and easy to use. I have dipped in and out of this book over the last few weeks and I have found it very interesting, easy to read and understand when I am so time poor.
An excellent resource for both teachers and students.
An ideal addition to the Curriculum module on the Diploma as well as useful for developing an understanding of the nature and development in curriculum design and impact on learners
A simple to read book that helps students to understand and teachers to deliver the underpinning knowledge for the unit - Highly recommended.
The Learning Matters books are a great supplemental read. The book is easily accessible with some good supportive elements for use within assignments.
This book have been used within the Diploma in Education and Training module delivery. It is an essential resource for teachers/trainers when researching and developing curriculum design.
This book is so easy to read and easy to find the information you need as well.
This book is great for new teachers and a big help with the curriculum assignment too
Very good for Unit 6 of DTLLS year 2
A must for those looking to have a major input in Curriculum design and implementation with their educational establishment
Essential for the PGCE/Cert Ed. It is well written and easy to read
Fantastic resource for teachers in training and for doing SARS. Gives a great overview of curriculum, types and different areas within life long learning. Would definitely recommend to practitioners as well as trainee teachers.
This book is very easy to read, it served to educate and make the curriculum an easier subject to navigate.
This book is highly recommended on the reading list for the Cert Ed course
Advised as a supplementary text for our education students to see how education evolves across the sector. Some pertinant chapters, expecially chapter 2.
A good choice for the mandatory City and Guilds DTLLS unit however with current changes being implemented in September 2013 this may need revising.
Supports understanding for further discussion and implementation
Essential for the PGCE/Cert Ed. Dr Tummons writes so effortlessly it is very easy for students to dip in and out.
An excellent and easy to read book that covers all a newly qualified teacher needs to know about Curriculum Studies.
