Synopsis
"This is one of the most interesting texts I have read for many years ...It is authoritative and clearly written. It provides a rich set of examples of teaching, and a reflective discourse". - Professor George Brown. "...succeeds in inspiring the reader by making the process of reflective learning interesting and thought provoking ...has a narrative drive which makes it a book too good to put down". - Dr Mary Thorpe. "...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 practice-what-you-preach that I have seen." - Professor John Biggs. This unusual, accessible and significant book begins each chapter by posing a question with which college and university teachers can be expected to identify; and then goes on to answer the question by presenting a series of examples; finally, each chapter closes with 'second thoughts', presenting a viewpoint somewhat distinct from that taken by John Cowan. This book will assist university teachers to plan and run innovative activities to enable their students to engage in effective reflective learning; it will help them adapt other teachers' work for use with their own students; and will give them a rationale for the place of reflective teaching and learning in higher education.
