Synopsis

Teaching and Learning on Foundation Degrees A Guide for Tutors and Support Staff in Further and Higher Education by Claire Taylor

This is a complete guide for academic tutors and support staff involved in teaching on Foundation Degrees. What is a Foundation Degree? What are the needs of Foundation Degree students? How should course design and delivery be shaped? This text is a complete guide for academic tutors and support staff involved in teaching on Foundation Degrees throughout England and Wales. The contributors explore the specific and diverse needs of Foundation Degree students, a unique client-group in Further Education (FE)/Higher Education (HE) who have differing academic qualifications and work-based experiences. They will address aspects of course design and delivery including teaching techniques, e-learning and assessment. Drawing together theory and practice, this text will provide clear practical models for how to successfully deliver Foundation Degrees. Exemplars from a wide-range of disciplinary areas are brought together to fully explore these areas through a variety of methods, including case studies, examples of teaching materials and diagrams.
