While this book would not be appropriate for the module which I teach, it would be very suitable for the one which precedes it which is focused on attaining AFHEA and I will recommend it to that Module Co-ordinator. The book could be used by someone who was aiming to attain AFHEA on their own but could supplement the efforts of someone on a taught module for that status. I welcome the activities and the examples which are provided throughout.
This is an excellent text for colleagues new to teaching in HE. It outlines key roles and responsibilities for a teaching fellow. There was quite a heavy emphasis on the GTA status (understandably due to the author's role!) There could be some more variety e.g. examples of colleagues from a professional background entering HE, for example. But that said, I would heartily recommend it for colleagues entering our programme. I will add it to our reading list for 2022/23.
Really helpful introduction, so have added it to our reading list for the first module of our PGCert
