Format: Paperback
If you are new to teaching in the Lifelong Learning sector you may come across a bewildering range of academic terms - learning theories, curriculum models, ideologies. There is such a range of different views that you might be tempted to say if you can't make your mind up , how do you expect me to?
What this text does in a straightforward way is to introduce the reader to the range of theories and models that can influence the way in which you teach. It covers the main areas that trainees on Cert Ed / PGCE need to get a firm understanding of in order to learn about the theory that underpins their course.
It's particularly useful if you enjoy the practical activities of Geoff Petty but find his references to theoretical models rather too anecdotal. This book does look at practical teaching but don't depend on it as a "tips for teachers" manual - you need to go elsewhere for that. What this book does is help you to be informed about theories and come up with the ones that work for you in your context. The range of contributors to this book mean it doesn't have one voice dominating but it does have a cohesive style. Get this and it will see you through your course and afterwards in your practice as a professional.

The books has many explanations and theories to go along with the Cert Ed course, I would recommend you start to read this as soon as you get it, it will help with the first section.
The theories of Moser, Maslow and Bloom amongst others are prevalent in this book, helping to put them into practice.
In some areas it does go on a bit but I'm hoping this will be made clear later on.
Good book to recommend

If you are torturing yourself with this irrelevant and tedious course with pointless driveling essays on psycho-babbel, then this is the book for you. It covers most of the subject matter and will give you endless references. Recommended.
