Using Data to Improve Learning explains how teachers can incorporate 'no-frills' engagement with data, collected by themselves and others, into day-to-day teaching so that the process is useful, empowering and enjoyable. It presents strategies that are practical enough to attract teachers' interest, feasible enough to implement in ongoing and sustainable ways and rigorous enough to make immediate and positive differences to teaching and learning. The clear, step-by-step approach to theory is reinforced by 'at a glance' chapter summaries, integrated tips and real world examples throughout. Appropriate for all those who are new to engaging with data, those who may have little access to support from mentors or critical friends and those who want to extend the way they use data in their school or classroom, Using Data to Improve Learning provides a practical guide to the principles of action learning and school-based inquiry. In recognition of the challenges faced by busy teachers-the constant swathe of initiatives and reforms and the complexity of schools and school systems-the value of collaboration is emphasised. With teachers working together to collect, analyse, discuss and act upon data, the objectives of meeting professional standards and improving learning outcomes of students are shown to be both achievable and essential to effective teaching today.

The editors and authors set out to chart some of the changes taking place in pre-service teacher education and training. They examine the transformation in the supervision of students when they go into schools for teaching practice from a university base to a school base. The process is under scrutiny in Australia and the United States, whilst in England and Wales teachers are now asked to be real partners with their colleagues in the higher education institutions. This book explores what it is teachers are being asked to do in their roles as supervisors/mentors. The book is essentially practical in its approach using verbatim statements from student teachers and mentor teachers about the supervision/mentoring process. Four case studies by teachers and teacher educators give details of school/university partnerships which can be used as models for those in the initial stages of planning school-based programmes of teacher education.

Gathering concepts and techniques borrowed from outstanding college professors, The Joy of Teaching provides helpful guidance for new instructors developing and teaching their first college courses. Award-winning professor Peter Filene proposes that teaching should not be like a baseball game in which the instructor pitches ideas to students to see whether they hit or strike out. Ideally, he says, teaching should resemble a game of Frisbee in which the teacher invites students to catch ideas and pass them on. Rather than prescribe any single model for success, Filene lays out the advantages and disadvantages of various pedagogical strategies, inviting new teachers to make choices based on their own personalities, values, and goals. Filene tackles everything from syllabus writing and lecture planning to class discussions, grading, and teacher-student interactions outside the classroom. The book's down-to-earth, accessible style makes it appropriate for new teachers in all fields. Instructors in the humanities, the social sciences, and the natural sciences will all welcome its invaluable tips for successful teaching and learning.
