ReviewsOne could say the book is like a kaleidoscope or patchwork; it does not flow smoothly and you cannot read it in one or a few sittings. But this is its beauty. Professional development and reflection require pausing, reflecting about experiences and planning ahead. The readers of the book will pick it up, put it down; they may need or simply enjoy longer reflective breaks. This book offers ample reflective incidents, events or even adventures; it is a unique personal experience.
Humanising Language Teaching
Reflective practice is already an important concept in education and in management and is likely to increase in importance as an essential skill and attitude of mind for teachers, trainers and leaders in language education. This addition to Equinox Publishing’s expanding list of studies of the role of reflective practice in language education is important for researchers and for teachers in administrative and leading teaching and teacher training roles. As well as its extensive use of reference its dynamic quality comes from the actual reflections of leaders in language education about their lives, their teaching and their working in running teaching organisations.
