Improving Student Learning in College Classrooms.
Guskey, Thomas R.
Designed as a resource for persons interested in improving the quality of teaching and student learning, this book covers aspects of the teaching-learning process that can be altered with relative ease. Practical suggestions are given in chapters focusing on concepts known to have a strong influence on student learning. The chapters include: (1) new ideas on teaching and learning in higher education; (2) exceptionally effective college teachers (identifying and interviewing them, feedback, etc.); (3) learning and evaluation (traditional and alternative uses, critical elements, subject area differences, etc.); (4) mastery learning; (5) motivation and early success (predicting college success, importance of first semester and first test, etc.); (6) time use and student involvement (John Carroll's model, Benjamin Bloom's ideas on learning rate, allocated versus engaged time, etc.); (7) student support services (faculty contact, tutorial services, computer-assisted instruction, etc.); and (8) staff development (collegial sharing, program characteristics, etc.).
