Teaching and learning in further education; diversity and change, 3d ed.

Huddleston, Prue and Lorna Unwin.



249 pages




Updated to reflect current research, policy and practice in UK post-secondary schools, this contains material useful to other nations' institutions as well. Huddleston (education and industry, U. of Warwick) and Unwin (vocational education, U. of London) closely consider the most recent changes (felt around the world) in higher education, including changes in funding and expectations of outcomes, differences in funding, wider diversity in students and faculty, changes in curricula and qualifications, new and new-again theories in teaching and learning, questions of professional development and assessment, and differences in support for teachers. To this they add new material on work-related and workplace learning, e-learning, younger college students (in the UK, 14-16 year olds), full-time vocational programs, collaborations between vocational and higher education, marginal groups such as second-language learners, and developments in individual learning.
