Race, Phil Making Learning Happen: A Guide for Post-Compulsory Education Los Angeles: Sage Publications Ltd, c2010 [CO LB 2331 R33 2010]

This Second Edition of Making Learning Happen provides an accessible and practical discussion of teaching and learning for the post-compulsory sector of higher and further education. Central to the book is the author's well-known `ripples on a pond' model of learning, which identifies fundamental factors underpinning successful learning:

  • wanting to learn
  • taking ownership of the need to learn
  • learning by doing
  • learning through feedback
  • making sense of what is being learned
  • deepening learning through explaining, coaching, teaching
  • further deepening learning through assessing - making informed judgements

The book encourages teachers and students to address these factors head-on in a wide range of contexts, including large-group teaching, the design of assessment, small-group work, reflection, and in making good use of formative feedback.

As well as a thorough update based on feedback to the previous version, this edition includes three new chapters.
