Theory and Practice of Education (hardback)

David Turner

    Research output: Book/ReportBookpeer-review


    "To fellow academics may I say this: Don't put it unread on your students' reading list. Tackle it for yourself, for this is seminal." - Professor Michael Bassey (Praise for "Theory of Education"). The eagerly-awaited sequel to the award-winning "Theory of Education" considers issues of perennial interest to educators. In his compelling and controversial book, Professor David Turner shows how game theory and mathematical models can be used to develop an understanding of educational theory in useful ways. Professor Turner uses his findings to inform the debate on a wide variety of issues, including classroom management, teaching and learning in groups, quality assurance mechanisms and equality of opportunity in accessing educational institutions.
