A practical guide for all teachers embarking on their Masters in Teaching and Learning (MTL), this book begins by encouraging the reader to identify their own learning style and engage in different study methods, and goes on to explore higher level study skills and academic writing. The research required at Masters level is broken down and guidance is given on how to select, approach and interpret data. The final chapter discusses the real-life issues surrounding studying for a Masters while also embarking on a new career.
