Achieving QTLS Series
This book provides an accessible and up-to-date overview of the key issues surrounding the curriculum. Written for all those working towards QTLS, it provides examples and case studies from working FE colleges, adult education centres and work-based learning contexts as well as offering succinct summaries of key theories and debates relating to the curriculum. This fully revised Second Edition reflects the latest policies and thinking, has a new chapter on the implications of e-learning on curricula, and includes a full glossary of key terms and concepts.
Jonathan Tummons has worked in higher education since 1995. After six years as a lecturer in teacher education in the further education sector, in 2009 he took up his current post as senior lecturer in education at Teesside University where he is also research co-ordinator for education and a member of the management board for the Social Futures Institute, Teesside's research centre for the social sciences.
Although this is an older book, it is a good book which explains curriculum studies in a straight forward and clear way.
Right content for the course
A very useful book in getting the bottom of what curriculum is. Nicely laid out and easy to use. I have dipped in and out of this book over the last few weeks and I have found it very interesting, easy to read and understand when I am so time poor.
An excellent resource for both teachers and students.
An ideal addition to the Curriculum module on the Diploma as well as useful for developing an understanding of the nature and development in curriculum design and impact on learners
A simple to read book that helps students to understand and teachers to deliver the underpinning knowledge for the unit - Highly recommended.
The Learning Matters books are a great supplemental read. The book is easily accessible with some good supportive elements for use within assignments.
This book have been used within the Diploma in Education and Training module delivery. It is an essential resource for teachers/trainers when researching and developing curriculum design.
This book is so easy to read and easy to find the information you need as well.
This book is great for new teachers and a big help with the curriculum assignment too
Very good for Unit 6 of DTLLS year 2
