About this book

Introduction

Learning to Educate: Proposals for the Reconstruction of Education in Developing Countries is a practical and strategic guide for education leaders and others who want to do more to improve the quality of curriculum, learning, teaching, and assessment. The book is also a philosophical guide that articulates and affirms the fundamental values and purposes of education in a rapidly changing world. It confronts us with the opportunity and the necessity to unravel bedrock assumptions and stimulate further discussion about the nature of teaching and learning. What does it take to change mindsets? And how do we bring about “reconstruction” without losing our groundings and bearings? The authors, Ernesto Schiefelbein and Noel McGinn, use the full weight of their extensive knowledge in education research, teaching, policy, and action, to argue that, in order to reconstruct quality education, we must begin by improving its foundation. The result is a seasoned and superbly articulated examination of the principles and practices of teaching and learning, which focuses on the crucial need of all children to learn how to learn. Innovative, cultured, and consistently captivating, this book is bold and, in the field of comparative and international education, unprecedented. “… Current and cutting-edge knowledge on critically important dimensions of effective teaching and learning …” – N’Dri Thérèse Assié-Lumumba, Cornell University “… A treasury of insights into the education challenge currently proposed by the UN global 2030 Agenda: universal quality learning …” – Kenneth King, University of Edinburgh “… A helpful roadmap to the essential questions facing educators today …” – Fernando M. Reimers, Harvard University
