      This second edition of a popular text provides an accessible and practical discussion of teaching and learning for the post-compulsory sector of higher and further education. Central to the book is the author's well-known `ripples on a pond' model of learning, which identifies fundamental factors underpinning successful learning: wanting to learn - taking ownership of the need to learn. Improving Learning by Widening Participation in Higher Education presents a strong and coherent rationale for improving learning for diverse students from a range of socio-economic, ethnic/racial and gender backgrounds within higher education, and for adults across the life course. Edited by Miriam David, the Associate Director of the ESRC’s highly successful Teaching and Learning Research.

However, since participation in post-compulsory education is positively correlated with parental income, there is a popular perception that public spending on post-compulsory education is a policy that particularly benefits the middle classes.
