This book provides practical strategies and ideas drawn from real life situations that can be used to enhance teaching within HE. The use of distinct chapters covering specific topics makes the book accessible, easy to understand, and navigate. A valuable resource for the trainee and experienced teacher alike.

This book clearly links effective teaching methods into a higher education context. However, a lot of the tips are methods that have been previously cited in other teaching practice books for lower levels and I have not really found the 'creativity' new to inspire me to recommend students pay the high price for this volume.. It does encourage me that I am using correct techniques already. The first chapter was useful to bring together current policy development.

Key issues are addressed in each chapter. Each key aspect is present in a easily understood format.
