The 10 editions of the newsletter provide a forum for the sharing of research findings, observations, instructional strategies, and opinions on subjects pertaining to college level teaching and college faculty. Multiple subjects are discussed in each issue and are often based on recent books. Among the topics covered and the issues in which they are located are the following: (1) suggestions as to what constitutes good college teaching, cheating, and textbook evaluation (January); (2) ideas to create cooperation and participation within the classroom, coursework and student learning, and part time faculty (February); the use of writing in student learning, writing across the curriculum, and problem solving (March); the nature of scholarship, diversity, and developmental change in students as they progress through the college experience (April); cooperative learning and college teaching, handouts, and academic integrity (May); faculty vitality, small group instruction, and the problems with and proper use of crib sheets (June/July); faculty development, science instruction, and a checklist of questions for teacher preparation before the semester begins (August/September); survey results of irritating behaviors of both students and teachers, concept mapping, and the use of quotes (October); required reading assignments, student self-esteem, and effective thinking (November); and eliminating unnecessary vagueness in instruction, the syllabus, and instructional evaluation (December).
