Well structured book that clearly follows and compliments the AET course - provides our learners with a welcomed additional resource.

This book has a good logical structure, it contains some useful information, but will not be very useful to our students in terms of guidance towards assessment.

Excellent addition to the students reading list

This book provides a sound and clear practical guide to the development of teaching and learning. The references to theory are particularly welcome, and support the practice advocated in the text.

This remains the book that we provide on our AET courses as essential reading and to support our in class discussions.

Without actually doing the work for the student this text (if read) will enable effective and enjoyable learning and really help with assignment completion, would not have the students be without a copy.
