About the Author:

Rob Toplis is Senior Lecturer in Secondary Science Education at Brunel University, UK.

Review:

"The book is user friendly and written in an understandable and jargon-free way by current and experienced practitioners. It maintains its accessibility throughout in a refreshingly non-condescending manner. In keeping with good practice, each chapter starts with a series of objectives and many include a number of tasks to help develop the skills needed to be a reflective and critical teacher. The references and ideas for further reading are recent and relevant, and would be a good starting point for trainee teachers to further engage with the topics discussed"John Caroll, Education in Chemistry
