This book is a comprehensive introduction for educators wanting to understand the techniques, contemporary theories and methods of teaching - from facilitating problem-based learning to the role of the lecture. It explores the issues that underpin interpersonal methods of teaching, and offers genuine insights through a broad and multi-disciplinary perspective on these methods. It will help teachers at all levels to understand the techniques that they can call upon at different times and situations, and will help to develop more effective teaching practice.
This fully updated second edition contains new material on e-moderating (teaching online) and its implications for teaching theory, issues surrounding disciplinarity and teaching and also the ethical dimensions of teaching.
The Theory and Practice of Teaching will be of interest to anyone wanting to develop a deep understanding of the key themes and latest developments in teaching, and is an ideal companion volume to The Theory and Practice of Learning (Second Edition, Jarvis, Holford and Griffin, RoutledgeFalmer 2003).
