A Concise Guide to Education Studies

By Duncan Hindmarch, Fiona Hall, Lynn Machin, Sandra Murray

A Concise Guide to Education Studies explores key contemporary issues in education, featuring the latest theoretical perspectives and policies aimed at supporting the professional development and understanding of those working or intending to work in the education sector. Both school- and college-based education have faced rapid change over the last few years. A strong research base around the impact of these changes is emerging, enabling a critically informed debate on policy and practice developments. This book provides an up-to-date, evidence-based overview of key changes, their underlying rationale, as well as an examination of alternative viewpoints. The content is concise and focused while still developing readers' critical thinking skills through tasks embedded within each chapter, as well as a distinct section on critical reflective thinking. Other key topics include inclusion, leadership, community education, comparative education, research and education futures. (Series: Education Studies) [Subject: Education]
