This is an easily understandable and practical guide to effective teaching for teachers and trainers in all instructional settings: school, further education and training, and higher education. It is particularly useful for students, both as a text for their theoretical studies and as a reference during their practical teaching experiences and their later teaching careers. This second edition has been extensively revised and now includes introductory chapters that provide a strong theoretical base as well as a chapter on outcomes-based assessment.
