This book explains and demonstrates how creative writing can be used successfully in the context of professional education where traditionally a more distanced approach to reporting on professional experience has been favoured. It is based on many practical examples, drawn from several years' experience of running courses for social workers, nurses, teachers, managers and higher education staff, in which participants explore their professional practice through imaginative forms of writing. The participants experience of the work is presented through a discussion of interviews and evaluative documents. The book includes a set of distance-learning materials for those wishing to undertake such work for themselves or to establish similar courses, as well as a full analysis of the link between professional reflection and the artistic imagination. The book makes available a new and more broadly-based approach to the process of professional reflection, and the concept of the patchwork text has general relevance for debates about increasing access to higher education qualifications.

The Enquiring University Teacher is an engaging account of an approach to professional development in which one's own teaching is an exiting field of enquiry. It emphasizes the intrinsic interest of learning about university teaching with colleagues who bring their insights from different subject backgrounds and thereby provide a richer understanding of teaching and the learning processes. The book explores the nature of the university teacher's enquiry' a form of professional learning which is both collaborative and personally reflective. It involves questioning personal and intellectual values and placing these at the center of university teaching. The book is deeply thoughtful yet accessible to academics from all disciplines who may have no specialist educational background. While it is suitable from all disciplines who may have no specialist educational background. While it is suitable for the relatively new, as well as the more experienced university teacher, it encompasses a view of teaching and learning that challenges many common conceptions about university teaching and its relationship to disciplinary research.

"The book is written in a lively, engaging, conversational style, without compromising on empirical rigour to substantiate its claims. ...All practitioners of problem based learning will benefit from the multipronged perspectives on pbl facilitation contained here." British Journal of Educational Technology Interest in problem-based learning continues to flourish worldwide. To date there has been relatively little to help staff examine the complex issues relating to facilitating problem-based learning and the ongoing development of staff, students and the curriculum. This book explores a broad range of issues about facilitation. It investigates understandings of facilitation that have emerged from the author's recent research and ways of equipping and supporting staff in terrestrial and virtual contexts. It also questions how students are assessed and suggests ways of preventing plagiarism in problem-based learning. This book examines what it means to be an effective facilitator and argues ways of designing problem-based curricula that enhance learning.
