Teaching and Learning in Further Education

Teaching and Learning in Further Education Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Further education colleges now deliver education and training to more students than any other institutions in the post-compulsory sector. Presenting a practical guide to teaching and learning within the context of the changing FE environment, this book addresses the diverse nature of the curriculum and of the student body for which it is designed.

This new edition looks at recent developments in policy, legislation, the organisation of the FE sector, student profiles and other contextual factors, which have an impact on the everyday life of colleges. Topics in this third edition include:

14-16 year olds in college and the impact of the Increased Flexibility Programme

marginal groups in college, including second language learners and asylum seekers

workplace learning, college/workplace links, e-learning and individualised learning

developments in e-assessment, and personal records of achievement

Full of practical activities and case study examples, Teaching and Learning in Further Education helps the reader to consider differing student needs and how these might best be served. It is essential reading for lecturers, tutors and teaching assistants in higher and further education.

Book News Annotation:

Updated to reflect current research, policy and practice in UK post-secondary schools, this contains material useful to other nations' institutions as well. Huddleston (education and industry, U. of Warwick) and Unwin (vocational education, U. of London) closely consider the most recent changes (felt around the world) in higher education, including changes in funding and expectations of outcomes, differences in funding, wider diversity in students and faculty, changes in curricula and qualifications, new and new-again theories in teaching and learning, questions of professional development and assessment, and differences in support for teachers. To this they add new material on work-related and workplace learning, e-learning, younger college students (in the UK, 14-16 year olds), full-time vocational programs, collaborations between vocational and higher education, marginal groups such as second-language learners, and developments in individual learning.
