Schoen's text reveals how to prepare individuals to handle the complex and unpredictable challenges of real-life practice with confidence and skill. He shows that one can indeed cultivate the artistry that distinguishes master professionals - their ability to recognize when a problem cannot be handled in a standard way, to exercise sound judgment in the midst of uncertainty and to improvize creatively. And he describes how professional education programmes can be redesigned to foster such capabilities in future professionals.

A leading M.I.T. social scientist and consultant examines five professions--engineering, architecture, management, psychotherapy, and town planning--to show how professionals really go about solving problems.The best professionals, Donald Schön maintains, know more than they can put into words. To meet the challenges of their work, they rely less on formulas learned in graduate school than on the kind of improvisation learned in practice. This unarticulated, largely unexamined process is the subject of Schön’s provocatively original book, an effort to show precisely how ”reflection-in-action” works and how this vital creativity might be fostered in future professionals.

Now in its second edition, Teaching and Learning through Reflective Practice is a practical guide to enable all those involved in educational activities to learn through the practices of reflection. The book highlights the power that those responsible for teaching and learning have to appraise, understand and positively transform their teaching. Seeing the teacher as a reflective learner, the book emphasises a strengths-based approach in which positivity, resilience, optimism and high performance can help invigorate teaching, enhance learning and allow the teacher to reach their full potential. This approach busts the myth that reflection on problems and deficits is the only way to better performance. The approach of this new edition is an ‘appreciative’ one. At its heart is the exploration and illustration of four reflective questions: What’s working well? What needs changing? What are we learning? Where do we go from here? With examples drawn from UK primary teacher education, the book reveals how appreciative reflective conversations can be initiated and sustained. It also sets out a range of practical processes for amplifying success. This book will be a must have for undergraduate and PGCE students on initial teacher training programmes. It will also interest practising teachers, teacher educators and those on continuing professional development courses.

Teachers and student teachers in social work will gain valuable insight into the artistry that makes truly great teaching from the accounts found in this new book. Master teachers examine the processes they use in the classroom and present them in a format that facilitates the practical application of their ideas. The teaching methods recounted here emphasize the learners as the most important component of the teaching/learning experience and demonstrate techniques to enliven and enhance the reader’s own teaching methods. This vital book focuses on teaching “technologies,” defined as bodies of knowledge or skills ordered for use, that are comprised of techniques or systematic procedures that bring the technologies to life. By utilizing the techniques and technologies portrayed in this volume, social work educators at the graduate and undergraduate levels will become more effective at reaching their students and helping them grow into professional social workers. Teaching Secrets helps teachers increase the effectiveness of their teaching by demonstrating how to pay attention to acts and nuances that stimulate and assist students in their learning. Individual chapters focus on specific classroom environments, providing practical advice to improve learning in each situation. Social work teachers will discover more effective teaching through the use of student journals, the use of self in teaching doctoral research, the use of authority, and the benefits of student-student learning in work groups. Other chapters offer practical advice on reaching different groups of students such as black teachers leading white students, white teachers leading black students, and special efforts for reaching female students. This exciting book reveals that great teachers are not born but made, and shares the secrets that will help all social work educators to develop greatness in their own classrooms.

PRAISE FOR EDUCATING PHYSICIANS "Educating Physicians provides a masterful analysis of undergraduate and graduate medical education in the United States today. It represents a major educational document, based firmly on educational psychology, learning theory, empirical studies, and careful personal observations of many individual programs. It also recognizes the importance of financing, regulation, and institutional culture on the learning environment, which suffuses its recommendations for reform with cogency and power. Most important, like Abraham Flexner's classic study a century ago, the report recognizes that medical education and practice, at their core, are profoundly moral enterprises. This is a landmark volume that merits attention from anyone even peripherally involved with medical education." —Kenneth M. Ludmerer, author, Time to Heal: American Medical Education from the Turn of the Century to the Era of Managed Care "This is a very important book that comes at a critical time in our nation's history. We will not have enduring health care reform in this country unless we rethink our medical education paradigms. This book is a call to arms for doing just that." —George E. Thibault, president, Josiah Macy, Jr. Foundation "The authors provide us with the evidence-based model for physician education with associated changes in infrastructure, policy, and our roles as educators. Whether you agree or not with their conclusions, if you are a teacher this book is a must-read as it will frame both what and how we discuss medical education throughout the current century." —Deborah Simpson, associate dean for educational support and evaluation, Medical College of Wisconsin "A provocative book that provides us with a creative vision for medical education. Using in-depth case studies of innovative educational practices illustrating what is actually possible, the authors provide sage advice for transforming medical education on the basis of learning theories and educational research." —Judith L. Bowen, professor of medicine, Oregon Health & Science University

The author accounts for her research both genetically and biographically, simultaneously restructuring the development of her ideas and giving a rigorous, critical and reflective account.
