Since the publication of the first edition of this book in 1983, A Handbook for Medical Teachers has established itself as an ideal resource for new and established teachers who frequently still have little opportunities for education training. Its popularity relates to the successful combination of sound educational principles, a how-to-do-it approach and an entertaining easy-to-read style. It is supported by numerous illustrations, examples, and pertinent cartoons.

This fourth edition has been extensively revised to reflect the major changes that continue to occur in both undergraduate and postgraduate education.

Many academic staff are coming under external and internal review to demonstrate their teaching competence and the quality of their courses and assessments. This book gives valuable help and advice to those having to respond to such pressures.

The illustrations are by Zig Kapelis, formerly Senior Lecturer in Architecture at the University of Adelaide.
