Successful College Teaching: Problem-Solving Strategies of Distinguished Professors
The challenge is enormous. Today college professors are teaching to a wider more diverse student body than ever before. Budgets are under fire, and financial "solutions" range from cutting back on sabbaticals to increasing class sizes. Legislatures, businesses, and college administrations are escalating their demands for faculty "productivity." Graduate teaching assistants and junior faculty face a baptism by fire, with little, if any, training in how to teach... and they can look forward to fewer tenure-track and full-time positions.
Yet on scores of campuses throughout the country, distinguished professors are winning awards for teaching excellence--often repeatedly. How do they do it? And how can others learn to do it too?
