The third book in the Pedagogy for a Changing World series, Zest for Learning examines how schools can enrich their pupils’ learning both within and beyond school. It explores the ways in which teachers can fuel their pupils’ curiosity and help them to find their passions, develop their independence, and challenge themselves to become more expansive learners.This can be encouraged by greater engagement with sports and the arts, by collaborating with external bodies such as the Scouts and Guides, or the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award scheme, or with libraries, museums, faith groups and environmental organisations.

Zest for Learning connects the co-curriculum with the formal curriculum, building both theoretical and practical confidence in the kinds of pedagogies which work well. The book is packed with practical ideas for getting pupils to love learning so much that they will be able to learn whatever they want to throughout their lives.

We are extremely grateful to the Royal Yachting Association for sponsoring this launch.
