Excerpt: If you are new to the scholarship of teaching and learning and want to get a solid foundation on how to make your courses more effective learning experiences, this book is an excellent choice. Teaching at Its Best is aimed directly at faculty to use for themselves, rather than for faculty developers or administrators. The content is a combination of “how to...” suggestions that will improve general teaching effectiveness as well as “what is...” sections that discuss different learning theories and methods.
