The College Instructor's Guide to Teaching and Academia.
Udolf, Roy
The guide is more than a how-to-do-it manual of useful teaching techniques; it also offers ideas for handling problems with colleagues, campus politics, the administration, and students. The rewards and penalties of a college teaching career are reviewed. The variety of the professor's interactions with students is described and the general principles of dealing with student problems are outlined. The tools of the trade--teaching methodologies--are covered in detail, although use of them is acknowledged as a personal thing. Problems with students and with course, testing and grading, selecting texts and materials, getting clerical procedures in perspective, and evaluating and improving teaching come under special consideration. The approach taken is that guidance is a major part of teaching, and that people come before point averages. The appendix contains forms to be used by teachers and students in making evaluations.
