Reflective Teaching in Further, Adult and Vocational Education is the definitive textbook for reflective professionals in further, adult and vocational education, drawing on the experience of the author team and the latest research, including that of the Teaching and Learning Research Programme (TLRP) findings. It offers extensive support for trainee and practising teachers in further, adult and vocational settings, for both practice-based training and career-long professionalism. Now in its fourth edition, written by a collaborative author team of further, adult and vocational education experts led by Yvonne Hillier and Margaret Gregson, Reflective Teaching in Further, Adult and Vocational Education offers two levels of support: - practical guidance for practitioner success with a focus on the key issues including individual and collaborative approaches to reflective practice, a systematic approach to educational improvement based upon Joint Practice Development; and - evidence-informed `principles' to aid understanding of how theories can effectively inform teaching practices and offer ways to develop deeper understanding of effective practices. The new edition is also enhanced by improved navigation and updated pedagogical features, including a revised chapter structure and text design, all-new case studies, activities, figures and diagrams. The team includes: Margaret Gregson (University of Sunderland, UK) | Yvonne Hillier (University of Brighton, UK) | Gert Biesta (University of Luxembourg, Luxembourg) | Sam Duncan (Institute of Education, University College London, UK) | Lawrence Nixon (University of Sunderland, UK) | Trish Spedding (University of Sunderland, UK) | Paul Wakeling (Havering Sixth Form College, UK) Reflective Teaching in Further, Adult and Vocational Education directly compliments and extends the chapters of this book. It has been designed to provide convenient access to key texts, working as a compact and portable library. The associated website, www.reflectiveteaching.co.uk offers supplementary resources including reflective activities, research briefings and advice on further readings. It also features a glossary of educational terms, links to useful websites and showcases examples of excellent research and practice. This book forms part of the Reflective Teaching series, edited by Andrew Pollard and Amy Pollard, offering support for reflective practice in early, primary, secondary, further, vocational, university and adult sectors of education.

MEDIA REVIEWS
An instant FAVE for those teaching in further, adult and vocational education ... It can be used as a powerful reference book and is full of current thinking, research, policy and practice that I shared with colleagues. It's also packed full of useful links ... [A] real insight into the world of further education. * InTuition *
Precisely positioned in the domain of vocational and further education, this book presents a new enlarged vision and an innovative pedagogical approach ... [It] offers extensive support for experienced practising teachers and consequently for trainees in their initial and continuing professional development. This book is both a textbook and a tool of reference to be consulted time and again by FAVE teachers and instructors looking throughout their career to develop their reflexive practice. * International Review of Education *
I thought I knew a thing or two about further education, but Reflective Teaching in Further, Adult and Vocational Education has opened my eyes and my mind. It is at one and the same time comprehensive and personal; authoritative and sceptical; engaging and challenging. This is not a book to read at one sitting but to consult time and again for thoughtful overviews of all the main issues in further, adult and vocational education. * Frank Coffield, Emeritus Professor of Education, Institute of Education, University College London, UK *
Reflective Teaching in Further, Adult and Vocational Education is a very important publication, the most comprehensive book on teaching in a sector unfamiliar to most politicians and much of the media. It is informative, rigorously research-based, measured and clearly written. It demonstrates convincingly how critical the role of teachers is, for both a healthy society and a productive economy, and also how essentially complex the wisdom and expertise of teachers needs to be. I expect it to become the standard text for post-compulsory sector teacher education. * Jay Derrick, Director of Post-compulsory Initial Teacher Education, Institute of Education, University College London, UK *
I found Reflective Teaching in Further, Adult and Vocational Education highly readable and practical, focusing as it does on the key issues that teachers and practitioners in further, adult and vocational education and vocational education elsewhere face in their daily work. The book provides wise advice and much food for thought. As a result it will be an invaluable asset for those wishing to better understand how they might improve their teaching practice. * Berwyn Clayton, Director of the Work-based Education Research Centre, Victoria University, Australia *
Reflective Teaching in Further, Adult and Vocational Education is a welcome alternative and antidote to books that aim to provide a technical manual on how to teach in further education settings. This accessible and illuminating book eschews abstraction in favour of a deeply contextualised approach. Reflective Teaching in Further, Adult and Vocational Education guides the reader through the principles and values underpinning reflective practice in a refreshingly honest, personal and straightforward way. This is a compendious and essential book for teacher educators and students alike. * Rob Smith, Principal Lecturer and Research Fellow, Centre for Research and Development in Lifelong Education (CRADLE), University of Wolverhampton, UK *
Full of insight, advice and scholarship of the highest level, this extended version of the Yvonne Hillier's classic is a must-buy purchase for any teacher, including those in further adult and vocational education. It is comprehensive, written by expert practitioners, full of opportunities for reflection and action, and truly focussed on learning for social justice. * Jim Crawley, Senior Lecturer and Teaching Fellow, School of Education, Bath Spa University, UK *
Reflective Teaching in Further, Adult and Vocational Education book is fantastic. It combines bang-up-to-date scholarship and research with a wealth of practitioner experience, in a text that is entirely suitable to both trainees and newer teachers in the ever-diverse post-compulsory sector. Eschewing the bullet points and over-simplified approach that blight too many other books, this volume instead positions the readers as being intelligent, critically aware and thoughtful - and does not let them down. It's thorough, thoughtful, grounded in rich practice and critical use of theory, and should be compulsory reading for all in the sector. * Jonathan Tummons, Lecturer in Education, Durham University, UK *
