These study guides cover the basic concepts and skills required in a subject at first-year level and combine generic academic skills, professional skills and academic content. They simplify difficult concepts and allow the student to practice and apply these concepts. Each chapter covers the key areas of skills, ideas and practice. The step-by-step approach promotes an understanding of complex concepts. Practice for the exam exercises at the end of each chapter help students prepare for the exams. Tips are provided on how to cope with learning in the tertiary environment.
This substantially revised text provides a comprehensive, highly accessible, and student friendly introduction to the principles, concepts, and methods currently used in educational research. This text provides a balanced combination of quantitative and qualitative methods and enables students to master skills in reading, understanding, critiquing, and conducting research. Many examples and article excerpts are used throughout the text to demonstrate and highlight best practices in educational research. Evidence-based inquiry is emphasized in two ways: (1) Introductory chapters focus on the added importance of data driven decision-making, (2) Methodological chapters provide explicit guidelines for conducting empirical studies.
How do you bridge the gap between secondary and tertiary education so that you will succeed in the academic environment? How can you learn to think critically as you embark on your academic career? Which practical skills do you need to develop the cognitive expertise that forms the foundation of university preparation? Introduction to scholarship: a practical guide to building academic skills for tertiary study offers a practical, skills-based approach to developing the basic academic and critical thinking skills required to succeed in the tertiary environment. The book has a broad scope as it focuses on critical thinking and other cognitive skills which form the foundation of university preparation. The textbook assumes a generic, relatable and practical, coached approach to the theory and practice of academic skills and thinking. Each chapter begins with a relevant and familiar educational/life scenario that students will be able to relate to, after which each short section features basic theory, and then practice opportunities. The tone is humorous and collegial, which will encourage students to relate and co-create in their learning as opposed to simply filling in their tabula rasa. The supplementary material features more specific short-theory and practice opportunities. For example, in the referencing section, law students are shown TSAR referencing practice and given realistic examples with which to practise, Psychology students are shown APA referencing, and Humanities students are given samples and practice in the Harvard Standard method. While the approach is generic and is suitable for most first-year students, it remains relevant and useful to students so that they will not be required to source another textbook to engage in any basic academic activity. The textbook will be designed with tertiary institutions new trend towards Learner Management Systems in mind, and the supplementary material will be compatible with this (i.e. via OUPs new Learner Zone), or more traditional platforms, such as CD drives.

The intermediate phase is a critically important period in schooling, when most learners make the transition from learning in their home language to using English as the language of learning and teaching. Learners and teachers find it a daunting time. There are language and literacy challenges in learning English as a subject, in addition to the linguistic complexities of classrooms in urban areas. Recent research has indicated that many intermediate phase learners are also still not fluent readers. Teaching English: As A First Additional Language In The Intermediate And Senior Phase will support teachers in overcoming these classroom challenges.
The book starts by exploring who the Intermediate and Senior Phase learner is – physically, socially, emotionally and cognitively – and then focuses on the skills of reading and viewing, writing, and speaking and listening.

South African educationists still face major challenges, of which curriculum changes are at the core. Teachers play an important role as key agents of curriculum change, and can contribute to the successful and dynamic development of curriculum if they are empowered with the appropriate skills and knowledge. Their own disposition towards curriculum can also be an empowering aspect adding value to the process of relevant curriculum development.

This comprehensive textbook for reception year and foundation phase for teacher education students and teachers is based on The Reception Year, previously published by Heinemann. The focus in this book is throughout on how the child needs to explore the world through play. The book follows an integrated approach that will support the learner in terms of intellectual, physical, emotional, perceptual and language development. In line with the foundation phase guidelines the book has been written to include those areas that teachers grapple with, such as emergent literacy, reading and writing, emergent numeracy, movement, music and visual arts, assessment and inclusivity.
A resource for students and supervisors alike, the topics covered are related to the management of postgraduate research studies: the development of a successful research proposal (with examples); research resource management; research ethics and more.
To reflect the dramatic transformation education has undergone since 1994, this book provides a comprehensive and detailed picture of the structure of the education system. Various topics are discussed against the background of the historical development of education in the light of particular contexts and international trends. The book is recommended for policy makers, researchers and specialists in the field of comparative education.
This is the definitive book about the biggest changes in education, schooling and teaching since the school classroom was invented almost 300 years ago. The vision and power of the original "Learning Revolution" remains, but the authors now address current developments such as: how instant information and interactive technology are finally forcing a complete rethink of everything we've ever believed about education; how new interlocking networks are creating dramatic new models for learning; and how new teaching methods are revolutionizing schooling in pockets around the world. Dryden, the award-winning television and radio talk show host, is just completing a series of television programmes on new methods of learning and Vos is putting the finishing touches to a seven-year doctoral research project into the same subject. The combined power of these two dynamic authors is highly compelling!

"Learning in Adulthood"
"For this third edition of "Learning in Adulthood" we have paid
particular attention to work published since the last edition of
the book. This third edition of Learning in Adulthood builds on
material in the 1999 edition, bringing together the important
contributions of the past decade to our understanding of adult
learning. While we have preserved important foundational material
(such as a discussion of andragogy), we have also brought to bear
the most recent thinking and research. We have strived to put
together a comprehensive overview and synthesis of what we know
about adult learning: the context in which it takes place, who the
participants are, what they learn and why, the nature of the
learning process itself, new approaches to adult learning, the
development of theory in adult learning, and other issues relevant
to understanding adult learning."
Previous praise for "Learning in Adulthood"
"An essential volume in adult education."
"This book is extremely useful in that it provides an informed
overview of issues related to adult learning. It is very readable,
yet packs considerable challenge for the more experienced adult
""Learning in Adulthood"'s greatest strengths are its coverage
of the learning context, theory-building within adult learning, and
how social and ethical issues offer special challenges to adult
learning. It will be useful to both experienced and novice
continuing educators, as well as laypersons."
