'The refreshingly honest and practical outlook the authors share on current teaching and learning simply makes the book hard to put down...this book is a highly recommended to educators young and old for inspiration, selective resources and measured advice for their teaching practice.' - Physical Sciences Educational Reviews

'I found the book easy to read with some very practical guidance. It is possible to look at just one chapter if that is an area you wish to review but likewise reading through the whole process provided some new ideas for me. I would recommend this to anyone involved in teaching and learning as a very practical guide to the range of issues faced when designing a module or programme.' - ESCalate, Higher Education Academy

'Butcher and his colleagues provide a very useful-and directly practical-coverage of the essential steps of course design...Designing Learning scores very highly in my mind.' - British Journal of Educational Technology

"The sub-title of this concise but highly usable little book is "From module outline to effective teaching"-and, indeed, it does provide an effective coverage of the whole curriculum design and implementation process from the twinkle in someone's eye to a smoothly running, well taught and well managed product." -- British Journal of Educational Technology 39 (3) , 570-571

"The authors...bring together resources that elucidate the responsibilities involved in promoting learning in an institution of higher education. Ideas, concepts and resource associations are clearly defined giving an overall framework for reference and further research...Though this book is designed for new lecturers, part-time teachers, and graduate teaching assistants I would recommend it to all lecturers."--Jennifer Davis, Teaching Theology & Religion (2009)
