Great introduction to the issues facing the teaching of history at university (UK focused). In the 2001 edition some of the educational authorities discussed no longer exist and the use of technology in teaching (inevitably) seems a bit dated. These points aside, this is a book worth reading to explore the challenges history as a subject faces in teaching and assessing students in Higher Education.

Ability to conduct historical research does not necessarily mean ability to teach history. This book attempts to introduce the pedagogical issues facing instructors of history and to encourage - I think correctly - more thought about how to facilitate learning within history degree programmes.
