Teaching, Learning and Assessment: Steps towards Creative Practice takes the view that teaching, learning and assessment are not three separate aspects of an educative process but are inextricably interconnected dimensions of a holistic education. It proposes a new vision of curriculum andpedagogy, in which teacher education students from a range of backgrounds can become effective teachers by challenging their higher-order thinking and developing their critical thinking and problem-solving skills.
Dr Charles Kivunja is a Senior Lecturer in Pedagogy and Educational Leadership in the School of Education at the University of New England, New South Wales .
