9780415699358: Teaching for Learning: 101 Intentionally Designed Educational Activities to Put Students on the Path to Success

Despite a growing body of research on teaching methods, instructors lack a comprehensive resource that highlights and synthesizes proven approaches. Teaching for Learning fills that gap. Each of the one hundred and one entries:

  • describes an approach and lists its essential features and elements
  • demonstrates how that approach has been used in education, including specific examples from different disciplines
  • reviews findings from the research literature
  • describes techniques to improve effectiveness.

Teaching for Learning provides instructors with a resource grounded in the academic knowledge base, written in an easily accessible, engaging, and practical style.

Review:

"What a valuable catalog of 101 learning activities! And they adapt easily to almost any course. Each activity is an evidence-based variation on one of eight major instructional methods (e.g., lecture, discussion, graphic organizers, academic games). An instructor need never run out of effective teaching and learning strategies."

Linda B. Nilson. Director, Office of Teaching Effectiveness and Innovation, Clemson University, USA

"This expertly catalogued book provides an impressive number of well-planned, evidence-based teaching and learning approaches along with references to the research that confirms their outcomes. Instructors will be excited to apply these strategies to the teaching challenges and opportunities that they encounter."

Milton D. Cox, Director of the Original Lilly Conference on College Teaching, and Editor-in-Chief of the Journal on Excellence in College Teaching and the Learning Communities Journal
