Description

Teaching and Learning: A Guide for Therapists aims to provide a broad and practical guide to the many teaching methods available to therapists. These range from traditional methods, like the lecture, to those which involve considerable learner participation, such as role play, project work, seminars, and discussion groups. The book discusses clinical teaching and teaching of practical skills, and examines the essential activities of preparation, assessment, and evaluation. Although some attention is given to the processes of learning, the book is essentially a practical guide for the busy clinical therapist, rather than an in-depth treatise for a therapist undertaking a lengthy educational course. Every effort has been made to ensure that the book is accessible to practitioners with no previous knowledge or experience of teaching. It will also be useful to experienced tutors who are keen to extend their expertise. The book is extensively referenced to assist those readers who require further information.
