'This book widens the scope of reflection by not restricting it to the evaluation of teaching and learning strategies (technical level). Harrison asserts that we should use reflective practice, to critically explore people's assumptions in their teaching. This also involves reflecting on the ethical and political dimensions of educational goals...[The authors] direct teachers' attention to their many roles other than classroom teaching and expand these roles to include the contribution to the well-being and development of students' -
British Journal of Educational Research

'Reflective Teaching and Learning is an accessible guide for both student teachers and current practitioners to help them understand the components of the learning and teaching process....The accessible and easy-to-understand tone used by the authors enables a gentle yet thorough development for the student'
