Total Quality Teaching: Microanalysis of Effective Teaching Practices.
Brooks, Kent
Within a total quality teaching framework, this paper uses the results of observations of college teachers' classroom practices to develop a list of effective practices for undergraduate education of adult learners. The observations that were the basis for the practices listed here were part of a study of the teaching practices of 50 full-time and adjunct college faculty who taught evening courses to working adults during six 12-week terms in 1993-94 at Wayland Baptist University-Lubbock Center (Texas). These effective practices were observed and applied to a checklist of outcome-based standards developed by the Texas Consortium of State Organizations for Teacher Education. The findings are grouped and listed under nine categories: knowledge base, curriculum integration of practice and knowledge, instructor planning, instructional delivery, critical thinking and problem solving, student diversity, motivation, assessment strategies, and communication techniques.
