Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Beginning each chapter with a question with which college and university teachers can be expected to identify, this text then goes on to answer the question by presenting a series of examples. Each chapter closes with second thoughts, presenting a viewpoint somewhat distinct from that of the author. The aim of the text is to assist university teachers to plan and run innovative activities to enable their students to engage in effective reflective learning.

Bibliography; Includes index.
