About the Author

Stuart McNaughton is Professor of Education at the University of Auckland and New Zealand's Chief Education Scientific Advisor.


Instructional Risk in Education: Why Instruction Can Fail is a thoughtful and provocative book that deserves to be widely read and discussed. At the heart of it are analyses of the types of knowledge involved in successful teaching and considerations of how education may be lost. McNaughton draws on an extensive range of ideas in psychology and education. He illustrates his points with telling examples from work on primary and secondary schooling, but it has much to offer those interested in any phase of education.
