In order to assess and improve the effectiveness and quality of teaching it is necessary to evaluate the learning experience of students receiving tuition. This short, accessible and practical handbook provides all those teaching in higher or further education with an invaluable guide to developing and using their own 'toolkit' of techniques capable of exploring and appraising all the relevant aspects of their students' learning.
Written to meet the likely quality guidelines of most institutions, and taking into account the requirements of subject review (formerly teaching quality assessment) and continuing professional development, this book will be a valuable guide for all those involved with teaching and learning in post-compulsory education.
