Synopsis

This book hopes to change the nature of the conversation about higher education from critiques to focusing on efforts of systematic improvement in undergraduate education. Changing the Conversation about Higher Education establishes a culture of experimentation and evidence for undergraduate education through undertaking teaching and learning experiments at 13 universities. This book discusses the contributions and findings from these experiments and is intended for academic administrators, faculty, and graduate students who are interested in improving undergraduate teaching and learning. The experiments are directed at two core aims of a liberal education: critical thinking and writing. The book is structured to address the issues of vision, structure, and cultural transformation that are of specific interest to academic administrators and the promising practices and issues of identity and support that are concerns of faculty and graduate students.

Dr. Robert Thompson is a professor in the department of psychology and neuroscience at Duke University where he has served as head of the division of medical psychology, director of the undergraduate program in human development, dean of Trinity College of Arts and Sciences, and Vice Provost for Undergraduate Education. Dr. Thompson received the Bachelor of Arts degree from LaSalle College in 1967 and a Ph.D. in clinical psychology from the University of North Dakota in 1971 and served on the faculties of Georgetown University Medical School and Catholic University of America prior to coming to Duke University in 1975.
