We are incredibly sad to pass on the news that one of our authors, Carey Philpott, died very suddenly on Friday 6 January. Carey was the author of Theories of Professional Learning in our series Critical Guides for Teacher Educators and had recently taken on the role of series editor, and author of one of the books, for a new series of texts on evidence-based teaching. Publishing is always the most fun when your authors are warm, witty, intelligent and passionate about what they do. Carey was all of these things. He welcomed me into his home for meetings and made me feel like one of the family with fresh coffee on the go and family members coming and going. I am immensely saddened by his death.
Pete Boyd, another of our authors and one of Carey’s friends and colleagues, has written the following tribute.
We are an award winning, independent publisher producing up-to-date resources which help students and practitioners in education and social work survive and thrive.
We are determined to uncover the best authors, on key subjects, and we work closely with them to develop our books so they valued by our customers, particularly in helping to develop and apply critical thinking skills to their work
