Fry et al have captured the difficulties in learning how to teach and give us good practical as well as theoritical advice on how develop as a teacher.
Throughout you are reminded that you are also a learner in the senario and also that learning occurs in numerous ways.
Chapters on supporting learning from expereince and on using information technology remind us of the new agenda in education and also within our own professions and make us think about how we can adapt our teaching for the modern world.
Overall this is a very thought provoking book which is easy to both read as a learning tool or dip into as a reference book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good learning tool 6 Feb 2012
It is a very good book when doing the PG certificate in learning and teaching in higher education. Hard reading when you are not used to the topics explained on it but it has lots of examples that make the theories easier to understands.

I bought this to look at the differences in approaches to teaching between further and higher ed, and I'm glad I got this book because it gives good information and comparisons, with a great section in the back looking at the approaches in the different topic fields. Fast delivery too.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Resource You Need 26 Sep 2009
By Dr. Samy A. Azer - Published on
This is an excellent resource for those who just joint academia and would like to teach in higher education but have little experience. This resource will be of great value and will not only provide teachers with key principles of teaching and learning in higher education, it will also provide them with practical approaches to enhance their teaching and develop their career. The book is edited by three experts in the area and the contents are discussed in over 500 pages with 29 chapters covering key topics teachers need to comprehend their teaching. The book was first published in 1999, this third edition enforces key issues discussed in the first and second editions and provide practical examples on teaching. It is a useful resource for teachers in higher education and I would recommend reading it.

I am enjoying this book in my class. The course is entitled The University Professor and it is thorough. We are using these concepts every class meeting.

 (What's this?)
Threshold concepts are those key ideas, concepts or processes in a discipline that need to be understood by students before they can understand other parts of the subject that follow from them. &quote;

Constructivism tells us that we learn by fitting new understanding and knowledge into and with, extending and supplanting, old understanding and knowledge. As teachers, we need to be aware that we are rarely if ever 'writing on a blank slate', even if prior understanding is rudimentary, or wrong. Without changes or additions to preexisting knowledge and understanding, little learning will occur. &quote;

There is some evidence that lecturers who take a student-focused approach to teaching and learning will encourage students towards a deep approach to study (Prosser and Trigwell, 1999). &quote;
