qThis innovative and readable book is not something to be cherry-picked for quick hints and tips. It is a work to be read and re-read and savoured for its humanity, sagacity, practicality and reflection upon the all-important relationships between teaching and learning and the teacher and the learner.q British Journal of Educational Technology q...a delightful and unusual reflective journey...the whole book is driven by a cycle of questions, examples, strategies and generalizations from the examples. In all, it is the clearest example of practise-what-you-preach that I have seen.q John Biggs, Honorary Professor of Psychology, University of Hong Kong Aca‚nA“This is a unique book, written by a well-known figure in HE who has broad experience and a long track record as an exemplary and caring teacherAca‚nAbThe book is unique because it is written in a very personal manner, with a sharing of the authorAca‚na„cs varied experiences and great enthusiasm for the processes of teaching and communication.Aca‚n Jenny Moon, Bournemouth Media Centre and Independent Consultant Aca‚nA“[CowanAca‚na„cs] innovative approach to the authorship of a well researched and practical book is worthy of particular mentionAca‚nAbPractitioners that are keen to allow spaces for innovative approaches to professional development in learners will find this text readable and thought provoking.Aca‚n Teaching in Higher Education On Becoming an Innovative University Teachershows readers how to plan and run innovative activities to engage their students in effective reflective learning.
