Research on College Teaching: A Review.
McKeachie, Wilbert J.
There is a need to establish research continuity to enable educators to discern trends in student learning and relate changes in student responses to different teaching methods. Generally, small classes seem more effective than large, discussions are preferred over lectures, and student-centered discussions over instructor-centered for better retention, application, problem solving, attitude changing, and motivation for further learning. The author concludes that teachers should be encouraged to develop a repertoire of skills to allow students enough options to maximize their motivation and learning. This Review covers research in college teaching from 1924 to 1970, and contains an extensive bibliography. (WM)
