"Unleashing Great Teaching is a remarkable book. It combines research on adult learning and the authors' hands-on experiences of working with schools to produce an accessible, practical, and at times entertaining 'how to' for improving teacher learning. Should be on the desk of every school leader in the country (if not the world)." Lucy Crehan, teacher, education explorer and international education consultant, UK.
