Michael Armstrong's contribution to the development of thinking about teaching (might he have said ‘to pedagogy’?) seems better known in the USA than in England. We hope that this collection of Michael's articles for FORUM journal will make his thinking more widely available.

The resonance and integrity of this body of thought will inspire those who, as Michael himself puts it, ‘against the current of the age’ are looking ‘to discover a language that is fit for the description of learning’. And equally fit for the discussion of teaching, assessment and curriculum.
