Teaching in Further Education

The Inside Story

By Susan Wallace

What makes for effective learning and teaching in the further education sector? This realistic, relevant, and accessible book explores the teacher's role in further education through means of a fictional approach. Through research conducted in the UK, the book provides a series of linked case study chapters, each set in the same fictional institution and each involving characters with a range of pertinent roles, who appear and reappear as their overall story arcs develop. The chapters' aims are clearly stated and each narrative is followed by an analysis of key points through challenging critical thinking activities. The clear contextualization of the required standards and skills is of particular value to pre-service student teachers and those beginning their careers. The fictional approach provides a picture of working life and professional practice inside a further education institution, with the flexibility to explore every topic that is essential to the student teacher, from professionalism, differentiation, and inclusion, to behavior management and student-teacher relationships. The book encourages analysis and reflection, firmly supported by realistic scenarios and situations. *** Librarians: ebook available on ProQuest and EBSCO (Series: Further Education) [Subject: Education]
