9780335196852: Facilitating Reflective Learning in Higher Education (Society for Research into Higher Education)

"A book that puts new forms of relationship and dialogue at the core of teaching and learning. It is likely to give courage to those who are daring to reflect differently on their teaching and learning practice, and to those who recognise the limitations of technology as some 'panacea solution' to challenges of mass higher education." - Professor Susan Weil. "A passionate and practical book...I would recommend highly to teachers, students, staff developers and anyone else with a concern for higher education." - Sarah Mann.This book offers hope and the practical means for university and college teachers seeking a new experience of learning, for their students and themselves. The book deals with learning which is real, genuine, relevant to learners now and for the future which is significant for their lives. Such learning embraces their relationships, work and careers, community, society and their world. Anne Brockbank and Ian McGill provide direct support for teachers who wish to move from teaching toward facilitating learning, thereby transforming the relationship between teacher and learner and between learners. Information technology, whilst useful, is not a substitute for the learning advocated here; facilitation enables learners to use technology productively and complementarily as a part of the learning process.This book enables teachers to acquire an understanding of facilitation and to enhance their ability to facilitate rather than teach in the traditional way. The authors emphasize the centrality of engaging in reflective dialogue with both colleagues and students. They explore the significance of emotion and action as well as cognition in learning. In addition they examine how teachers can best create the conditions for reflective learning. This is a practical book for university and college teachers which will help them facilitate their students' reflective learning.
