Product Description


"It is always a pleasure to read and review a book that resonates with one's own professional 'touchstones' and this work did not disappoint. The mantra, 'it is essential we provide the lifelong learning and work skills to prepare learners to be effective in collaborative group work contexts they will undoubtedly find themselves [in].' can elicit collective bobbing nods of agreement from almost any audience of educators. Combine this imperative with the timeless need to explicitly integrate critical thinking and learner engagement into our curricula and you will, undoubtedly, rouse even the most somnolent to rise to their feet, applauding. This book, edited by Michael Sweet and Larry Michaelsen succeeds in elegantly dovetailing these elements and in the process 'gets our attention' with its emphasis on practical applications moving theory into practice." --This text refers to the Paperback edition.
