Synopsis

Using empirical research, Effective College and University Teaching gives faculty and graduate teaching assistants the strategies and tactics they need for excellence in teaching. Whereas the majority of books on college and university teaching are 'how to' books, this volume provides both the rationale and a detailed guide for how to use and teach these practices to others. Written by leading scholars and expert master teachers, this volume outlines, reviews, and discusses the best practices for becoming effective teachers for undergraduate courses.







Aimed at the professional development of teachers at the college and university level, the book provides full coverage of those topics central to efficacious teaching practices such as developing a teaching philosophy, becoming an ethical teacher, and fostering active learning in the classroom.
