Hands up who thinks that the best way to engage students in the process of erudition is to hand each of them a textbook and let them get on with it as best they can? No one? Why is it, then, that the educational profession seems so keen on CPD through the medium of the written word alone? Griffith and Burns have many years’ experience between them both of teaching and of training, and this is what they use to turn this book into something that is far closer to a genuinely interactive learning experience than yet another weighty manual – it’s fitting indeed that the topic on which they have chosen to focus here is ‘engagement’ itself. Light in tone, with plenty of wry and thankfully non-patronising humour, each chapter offers plenty of great strategies to make your teaching consistently motivating and energising, without burning yourself out in the process.
