The Lecturer's Toolkit was first published as a photocopyable ring-bound resource and was an immediate success for all those in HE seeking to develop learning and teaching skills. Now fully revised, the second edition is available both as an A4 ring-binder and as a paperback edition for the first time. This new edition will be equally valued by individuals and by staff-developers for group work. Building on the practical strengths of the first edition, the toolkit is the primary resource for all teachers in HE, whatever their experience, who are seeking to improve teaching skills. Developed around detailed, practical guidance on the core elements of effective teaching in HE, the Toolkit will be essential for anyone working towards accredited teacher status (with the ILT, for example) as well as for those who want to reflect on and develop existing skills.

The aim is to improve the quality of data provided by countries to the IMF; and to assess evenhandedly the quality of countries’ data in Reports on the Observance of Standards and Codes.
