Self-efficacy is the belief in one's own capability to succeed in certain situations. This practical text demonstrates how teaching staff in higher education institutions can create environments in which students can believe in their capabilities and thus achieve their full potential.

Drawing on a variety of case studies, Laura Ritchie describes the processes through which students can achieve autonomy and develop the skills they need to succeed at university and beyond. Ritchie then goes on to put forward practical techniques and strategies for fostering self-efficacy. These include how to make better use of classroom time and space, communicate more effectively with students, and think more creatively about assessment. Combining theory with tangible methods for everyday use, this book gives educators a fresh perspective on how students can reach their potential.
