About the Author

Jim Gould manages the Teacher Education programmes at Farnborough College in Hampshire. He has extensive experience in teaching and training in a variety of educational sectors including schools, adult education and further education.


'Early in the text, the author states the aim of this book to be, ''to provide a relatively easily digestible overview of learning theory, and the references and further reading at the end of each chapter will allow you to engage in more in-depth study of areas that are of particular interest'' (p. 6). This, and considerably more, has been achieved in a well-crafted resource for both teachers and students in the lifelong learning sector (and beyond), one they will find informative and engaging in terms of truly understanding how effective teaching practices are informed and enhanced by learning theories.'

-- Susan E. Elliott-Johns * the International Review of Education - Journal of Lifelong Learning *
