About the Author

Jerry Wellington is Professor of Education at the University of Sheffield. Previous publications include Teaching and Learning Secondary Science (Routledge, 2000) and Educational Research: Contemporary Issues and Practical Approaches (Continuum, 2000).


'Wellington's treatment of the concepts that he does include is lucid, accessible and on the whole helpful. He is not afraid to include his own views where he considers this pertinent, and in the main offers a reasoned, sensible account of a range of concepts and their histories. His decision to add references and possible websites to each entry for further exploration adds a useful dimension to this volume.' -- British Journal of Educational Technology
