Making Learning Happen

by Phil Race

Race, who has worked with learners, teachers, and trainers, identifies how to make learning happen in higher and further education by focusing on learners and the key factors of successful learning. Chapters on learning in small and large groups, diversity, and addressing employability are included. This edition has been expanded based on the author's experiences running workshops in the UK and other countries. It has more on learning factors, which are linked to different teaching/learning contexts in other chapters; new chapters on designing curriculum for learning, addressing common problems in teaching post-compulsory education, and the nature of reflection. An extended chapter on assessment that includes a tool for examining assessment design and how it links to learning factors and validity, reliability, transparency, and other areas is included along with new discussion of helping learners get feedback quickly. The chapters on making workshops work and e-learning have been omitted. Annotation ©2012 Book News, Inc. , Portland, OR (booknews. com)
