Review quote

'This is a highly readable and authoritative book to support reflective teaching, and one of the best available in its field. From the refreshingly low tech advice and guidance on the use of resources, to the powerful understanding of policy in the sector, to the reminders about the ethical dimension, community purpose and individual value of education, this new edition is full of practical, helpful ideas and inspiration for the teaching practitioner. The book represents the values of professionalism and reflection in teaching at their best, and is equally useful when dealing with lesson planning, course evaluation and assessment as it is clear and accessible when dealing with theory and policy.' Jim Crawley, Leader of the Lifelong Learning Programme and Fellow of the School of Education, Bath Spa University, UK 'Hillier provides a good deal of wise advice and a set of common sense building blocks for effective and reflective teaching. Her book will be a wonderful addition to the teacher educator's toolkit and the toolkits of those that they teach.' Berwyn Clayton, Director of the Work-based Education Research Centre, Victoria University, Australia 'Hiller's book is already a classic for practitioners (those who are involved in teaching as lecturers and teacher trainers). This revised edition incorporates the latest developments in this fast changing education sector. It provides a very practical approach using the concept of reflective practice for those stakeholders who are involved in teacher education in the further education sector.' Sai Loo, Lecturer in Education, Institute of Education, University of London, UK 'Without teaching there is no learning. Reflective Teaching in Further & Adult Education reminds us of this fundamental fact. The book provides a comprehensive, easy-to-follow and academically sound road map to the journey of becoming and remaining a professional educator in Further and Adult Education. Amidst incessant policy changes in the sector, Yvonne Hillier's book continues to be an indispensable manual for both new and experienced teachers and tutors as they assert their continuing professionalism.' Rania Hafez, Director of Post Compulsory Education and Training, University of East London, UK
