Teaching Skills in Further and Adult Education (City & Guilds)

Teaching Skills in Further and Adult Education (City & Guilds)

by David Minton (Author)


This book presents a new approach to the teaching of adults. It addresses "how to teach effectively" rather than taking a descriptive or academic standpoint. It is in three parts - Part 1 assumes "responsibility at the level of class management", identifying the skills and understanding needed at this level. An activity programme, that includes study skills and preparing micro-lessons, enables the teacher to become effective in a teaching role and competent in the major tasks of teaching. Part 2 assumes "responsibility for a learning programme for a group of students". A cyclic approach to preparation, design, implementation, control, communication skills and assessment, enables teachers to work with their students to develop good learning and teaching strategies. Part 3 presents a brief survey of the major learning theorists and discoveries in psychology that underline the model of teaching/learning that is developed in parts 1 and 2.
