In The Press

This is a detailed and well written book that explores what it means to become a teacher in the rapidly changing Higher Education sector. To do this, the book explores pedagogy and context in all their myriad forms and as a result also explores what it means in terms of professional identity to practice learning and teaching in Higher Education settings. The book is wide-ranging, highly accessible and makes a significant contribution to developing, sustaining and improving practice. It positions teaching and learning as acts of exchange and partnership and provides a carefully explored research-informed base to contextualise strategies that teachers in HE can put into practice.
