"Masterfully balancing the practitioner's need for concrete suggestions and the scholar's quest for intriguing ideas, this book offers tips to be tried in class tomorrow and ideas to be mused on for months."
--Maryellen Weimer, professor, Penn State University-Berks Campus

"I have used the first edition of Joe Lowman's book for years and found it most helpful. The new edition is a must for teachers and faculty developers."
--Milt Cox, University Director for Teaching Effectivness Programs, Miami University

In this second edition of his classic resource, Joseph Lowman expands on his earlier model of effective teaching to place greater emphasis on motivational skill and commitment to teaching. He presents a practical new learning model that compares six sources of influence on what and how students learn in a college course. All types of teachers and instructors will discover options on how to organize classes and use group work to promote learning. They will also find a checklist for assessing their classroom performance on video, detailed instructions for using video analysis to improve their technique, and an innovative approach to evaluating their overall performance.

From the Inside Flap:

Since the publication of the first edition of Mastering the Techniques of Teaching in 1984, national interest in promoting effective college teaching has risen to an all-time high. While Joseph Lowman's revised second edition of this widely praised work retains the vision of exemplary teaching presented in the original, it has been completely updated to reflect the results of a wealth of additional research--140 new references appear in this second edition--and practice.Lowman presents for the first time a new learning model that details the relative strength of six sources of influence on what and how much students learn in a college course. He expands his earlier model of effective teaching to place more emphasis on motivational skill and commitment to teaching. And he presents still more options on how to organize classes and use group work to promote learning.This second edition also includes an expanded checklist to help college teachers analyze their classroom performance on videotape, detailed instructions on how to use videotape analysis to improve teaching, and a new approach to evaluating college teaching based on Lowman's expanded model of exemplary teaching.
