This is a practical 'how-to' guide which is supported throughout by accessible explorations of how teaching can support your research. Written by lecturers who have taught for many years, the 'voice of experience' sections will support and encourage you in your move towards becoming a successful and confident educator.
The Success in Research series, from Cindy Becker and Pam Denicolo, provides short, authoritative and accessible guides on key areas of professional and research development.
Avoiding jargon and cutting to the chase of what you really need to know, these practical and supportive books cover a range of areas from presenting research to achieving impact, and from publishing journal articles to developing proposals. They are essential reading for any student or researcher interested in developing their skills and broadening their professional and methodological knowledge in an academic context.

Not adopted to the programme but incredibly helpful for me personally as a lecturer, so will be recommending to my colleagues
its really good for tips on different ways to deliver things
I will recommend this to fellow academics who are learning to teach. The content is useful for theoretical essays and there is advice given on implementation of concepts in classroom practice. Most of the main teaching modes (lectures and tutorials) are covered in detail.
Would recommend this to students who are undertaking their research in educational settings, but not always appropriate given its pedagogic focus. Great for me as a lecturer, though!
A good text book. Constructive ideas in delivery of teaching; suitable for PGCE students.
A good book to read. Good and constructive ideas in the process and delivery of teaching
The book focussed on seminars and lectures, with very little on flipped classrooms, on-line or distance learning. The assessment sections were also very traditional and rather dated, focussing on exam and essay marking.
Wanted a book which was more use to teachers & students, not just academics
A very straightforward handbook about lecturing in higher education. Simple and easily accessible with some great ideas and a re-assuring tone.
A clear and engaging book. I have recommended it to other teaching areas within our institution.
