Student Learning: Improving Practice $205.00
Editors: Christopher Boyle (Faculty of Education, Monash University, Australia)
Book Description:
This book brings together an exciting group of international academics who are experienced teachers from a diverse range of disciplines with the common link being the development of innovative pedagogy which will enhance the quality of the learning dynamic. Lecturing and teaching are both art forms, at least if it is done well, and these have to be cultivated and honed. Whether you are a student studying education as a teaching student, an experienced teacher in schools, or a lecturer at university, this publication has an eclectic and informative set of chapters which provide not only ideas but real case examples of how different teaching techniques can work with a diverse group of students with an age range from four to one hundred and four. The latest technological advances are discussed as well as making the most of the more traditional techniques. However, the key is to improve the learning and teaching capabilities of the student and lecturer, respectively.
No book is complete or can be regarded as the authority on any subject and this one does not profess to be. Continual improvement in our methods is a laudable goal in the academic profession and this book will afford the reader some excellent insights and discussion points which will aim to enhance the practice of teaching and thus the learning experience of our students.
