This book is aimed at people taking on the challenge of managing a teaching module or course for the first time, and should also be a valuable resource to colleagues with some experience who wish to review and formalise their development in this area. Some colleagues will come to teaching management enthusiastically as something that interests them personally and professionally, others may find themselves persuaded or volunteered, but in either case this book should act as a guide and a framework for navigating what is often something of a neglected subject. Unfortunately the 'first-time' module organiser or course director has little to turn to beyond what their institution provides in the way of tailored resources, yet this book aims to remedy this, as a practical guide that realistically reflects the context of teaching in higher education, linked to sound learning principles, and grounded in some well-established models of good management. The emphasis throughout is on simple but useful messages, tools that can readily be applied or adapted, and on bringing these to life with meaningful examples and illustrations. With example from different levels of study, modes of study, subject disciplines and different ideas and values the book considers the difference between courses structured around classroom teaching and assessment by traditional examinations, and a distance-based programme of study assessed through project work and tutor-marked assignments. By focussing on the core elements of teaching management such as planning, delivery, and building the programme team, and illustrating each of these with examples reflecting a wide range of situations this introductory guide is the perfect route map for a career in teaching in higher education
