Summary

Written by educational specialists and including over fifty interdisciplinary entries, this essential compendium offers accessible, detailed definitions of the core concepts typically explored on undergraduate Education Studies courses.

Its interactive design clarifies topics at an introductory, intermediate and advanced level, supporting students across the three years of their undergraduate study. The history and evolution of each concept is outlined with concepts practically grouped around four interrelated key educational categories - the personal, philosophy, practice and power. Key academic debates and points of contest are explored, reference to real-life educational examples are offered, and reflective questions and further reading scaffold critical engagement.

Education Studies: The Key Concepts is a bookshelf must-have, moving readers towards a coherent stance based on theory and research. It is an easy-to-use resource for anyone looking to better understand education. It is also useful for those researching education at postgraduate level to broaden their educational knowledge base outside their specific foci.
