The book addresses a wide range of aspects of assessment, learning and teaching in post-compulsory education including: " how to provide a supportive learning environment - including online learning " how to design and manage formative assessment and feedback " how to support diverse students - including addressing and achieving student satisfaction." developing teaching - including lecturing, small-group teaching, supporting individual learning and dealing with disruptive students " how to use research to improve teaching " creatively designing curriculum " promoting student employability " broadening horizons - including widening and deepening participation " addressing and achieving student satisfaction.
