“Some chapters are particularly good in that they offer advice for situations which may be problematic, for example in the chapter on Problem Based Learning they discuss difficulties of group dynamics. The additional information in some of the appendices for example ‘Making your own podcasts’ is really helpful for readers and teachers, and encourages teachers to try new methods of teaching. A clearly presented, wellorganised text that provides the medical teacher with a concise and thorough reference book, which will help in the planning and delivery of medical education. It deals with both wellestablished constructs and methods in education as well as discussing current and emerging topics that will shape medical education in the 21st century.” Judges comments
