Book review: Emerging strategies for supporting student learning by Barbara Allan

Helena Beeson

Abstract


Changing times in terms of fees, student expectations, ‘millennials’ etc. all demonstrate the need for the shift in thinking that creates the call for this book. The title reflects a very practical, hands-on approach and the book delivers exactly what it says on the cover. This is achieved through case studies and tried and tested methods from a number of international institutions. Specific approaches to teaching and learning are discussed and evaluated from the perspective of librarians and associated tutor roles, although it would be applicable to anyone teaching in HE or even FE.
