About this title

Synopsis:

I've read countless books on teaching strategies over the years, and I can't think of one that compares--in depth, breadth, accessibility, and practicality--to this one. Tools for Teaching has much to say to teachers of all ranks, disciplines, and institutions.
--Mary Deane Sorcinelli, director, Center for Teaching, University of Massachusetts, Amherst

A rich compendium of classroom-tested strategies and suggestions designed to improve the teaching practice of beginning, midcareer, and senior faculty members. Forty-nine teaching tools cover both traditional tasks--writing a course syllabus, delivering a lecture--and newer, broader concerns, such as responding to diversity and using technology.

From the Back Cover:

"I've read countless books on teaching strategies over the years, and I can't think of one that compares--in depth, breadth, accessibility, and practicality--to this one. Tools for Teaching has much to say to teachers of all ranks, disciplines, and institutions."--Mary Deane Sorcinelli, director, Center for Teaching, University of Massachussetts, Amherst

"A 'tool chest' of strategies for those who are seeking ways to make their teaching more effective. This book is the kind of resources that will wind up not on faculty member's bookshelves but on their desks and in their briefcases." --Larry A. Braskamp, dean of the College of Education, University of Illinois, Chicago

"Tools for Teaching is as readable and comprehensive a collection of useful teaching techniques as I've seen in a long time. Experienced and novice instructors looking to improve their overall teaching, or simply to add a few new techniques to their repertoire, will find this book both interesting and useful." -- Joseph Lowman, professor, Department of Psychology, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill

"Tools for Teaching is a rich compendium of classroom-tested strategies and suggestions designed to improve the teaching practice of beginning, midcareer, and senior faculty members. Forty-nine teaching tools organized into twelve sections, cover both traditional tasks-writing a course syllabus, delivering an effective lecture-and newer, broader, concerns, such as responding to diversity and using technology.
Each tool includes a brief introduction, a set of general strategies, and concise descriptions of practice cal ideas culled from distinguished teaches, as well as from the literature on teaching and learning. The tools are designed to be read and used independently and function as a daily reference for faculty who are looking for the best knowledge and practices available on effective teaching. From designing and offering a new course to tackling the problems of burnout or stagnation, Tools for Teaching provides faculty members with the information they need to improve and revitalize their courses.
