From the Inside Flap:

This is an updated, revised edition of Kenneth E. Eble's best-selling book on the craft of teaching. The book present new insights and information on such issues of Anduring importance as how students learn, what keeps students and faculty motivated and excited, how individuals are prepared to teach at the college level, and more. Kenneth E. Eble's 1976 classic on college teaching was hailed as one of the best books ever published on the topic. Updated and revised in 1988, and now issued for the first time in paperback, this book offers fresh insights on issues of Anduring importance—from how students learn and how to make the best use of the classroom to the nuts and bolts of assignments, tests, grades, and textbooks. Eble devotes a chapter to critical thinking—analyzing such questions as what spurs us to think, how we move from random thought to problem solving, and what teachers can do to encourage and develop students' thinking. He also discusses the impact of computer-aided instruction on teaching, and offers a section on mentoring.
