Reviews

'This book is a timely addition to the literature of learning and teaching in higher education…I would certainly recommend this book as a core text to new HE staff when joing the programme, as a friendly introduction to a sometimes complex area.' - ESCalate

'I commend the authors on the style and quality of writing. Even with twenty plus years in teaching, I found each chapter had something to offer me. The text is friendly, almost conversational in its approach, and should appeal to most readers… This book is highly recommended, accessible and full of sound advice without being patronising. Those new to HE teaching and those with years experince will find something here to help them develop their teaching.' - Physical Sciences Educational Reviews, The Higher Education Academy
