Full Product Description

This is a book for all teachers on their central professional task of understanding and deploying skillfully a range of teaching modes and strategies in order to promote successful learning.

It provides a balanced exploration of practical teaching strategies and offers clear ideas that are supported by practical experience, research evidence and theory. Examples are given of teaching in a range of educational settings, and of issues teachers face in modern teaching roles. This book is comprehensive, balanced, open-minded and up-to-date, and informed by an awareness of international developments in the profession.

Effective Teaching and Learning in Practice is a book for all students in initial teacher education. Its insights, ideas and practical advice should also prove valuable to serving teachers and especially those undertaking further professional development. It is intended for anyone who takes seriously the understanding of modern ideas, research and developments in teaching and learning, and who is committed to becoming professionally skilled in the range of roles now required of teachers.
