A good text for developing further understanding of teaching HE in a FE environment, although a newer edition would also be of benefit, in particular extending on regulatory frameworks.
This book contains some interesting points on delivering HE in an FE setting. Chapters 2 and 7 are particularly interesting as providing the right environment so that there is a distinction between HE students and FE students is quite a challenge and there has been limited information on this to date. The book will not be of use to all L4 teacher Ed. students but for those delivering HE it will be a great starting point.
A good informative book with areas for your reflection. Each chapter has clear aims to begin with which is useful and adopted from a teaching perspective. Useful chapters including info on collaboration and conflict, bodies of responsibility and case studies are used to back up research and thought. Nicely written and easy to follow.
Excellent book for those teaching HE in an FE college setting. Gives good ideas on how to keep students engaged and positive
helping the students understand the learning process in HE actually helps them learn !
A very useful read providing essential background information for all PGCE students working in the post 16 sector.
I found this useful in staff development situations and working with the initial teacher training team in developing our own modules for HE level training. It was not relevant to the PTLLS course, as none of my trainees are working at this level. It will be useful for PGCE and Cert Ed programmes in the future, both to inform the development and delivery of these and other Level 4 and 5 courses and as part of the reading lists for trainees, some of whom may work on HE programmes.
No longer teaching on the course this text was considered for.
Very useful to have a book focussing on this growing area. It serves as a useful introduction, and many of the chapters would now warrant a book of their own!
Idenifies the issues faced by staff working across these two areas and is clear about how to address these constructively.
This is a good text for teachers teaching HE in FE
This is an interested text that has been offered to our students as supplementary reading. There are a number of teachers on the TAQA programme that teach HE within the FE environment and have discussed the practical examples put forward by the author in this text.
A helpful text exploring the role of HE lecturers in FE colleges and the wider policy drivers and quality assurance frameworks that underpinn professional practice.
Excellent book on the topic highly recommended
A useful text for people wanting to make that transition from FE to HE. Themes are relevant and answer the most common questions. It provides a clear overview of HE requirements and practices - of course every institution is different so it would be hard to be more specific than this book offers.
At present all my PGCE students are in secondary, SFC or FE. However, the book will prove very valuable at a later date. It is well laid out, clear and provides opportunity to use it for whole class discussion/reflection.
The chapter summaries are useful. The price makes it affordable for both the college and the student.
With the increase in the number of HE courses being delivered by FE institutes, this insightful text identifies and examines the issues, practicalities and opportunities offered by this expanding sector within a succinct and informative book. PGCE students wishing to teach undergraduate study within a further education environment will find this an invaluable addition to their course reading.
This is a useful book , enabling reflection on best practice in delivering HE courses in a FE college.
Another excellent book by Johnathan Tummons that is useful to develop ones own practice (Cert Ed/PGCE) and the practice of students who are delivering Higher Education within a Further Education environment. This book will be added to our reading list.
THis is useful for mentors as it provide them with some insight into teaching. However, some may find it challenging to relate ther concepts to clincial practice and mentoring students
