The Lifelong Learning Sector: Reflective Reader

Edited by:


March 2010 | 144 pages | Learning Matters
This book provides an overview of the Lifelong Learning Sector while also helping students engage with professional writing. Each chapter in the book is presented as an independently authored 'paper' concentrating on a key theme, including professionalism, reflective practice and how previous experience can shape teaching. Guidance and discussion notes follow to help the reader evaluate the writing and approach, and activities are included to develop the readers' own professional skills in reading and writing. This is an invaluable text for all those working towards QTLS, covering key content, demystifying academic writing, and encouraging reflective reading and practice.
