Bibliographic information


From the reviews:

“This edited book provides the reader with a wealth of expert writing from teachers, academics … . The fascination of the collection is its illustration of the interweaving influences of experience, reflection and practitioner research on teacher learning. … The book will thus appeal to teachers making sense of their own experiences and endeavours to enhance learning opportunities and improve students’ learning outcomes. It will be of particular value to those with responsibility for CPD and those embarking on reflective practice or practitioner research.” (Rachel Lofthouse, Learning and Teaching Update, Issue 15, June, 2008)
