Forster, Fred, Ed.; Hounsell, Dai, Ed.; Thompson, Sheila, Ed.
This handbook, primarily for new part-time teaching staff at colleges and universities in the United Kingdom, focuses on tutoring and demonstrating teaching skills. Following an introductory chapter, six additional chapters provide an orientation to tutoring and demonstrating. Chapter 2 presents an overview of the roles and responsibilities of new staff. Chapter 3 outlines preparation for tutorial classes in the arts and social sciences. Chapter 4 focuses on tutoring of problem-solving classes in mathematics and the sciences. Chapter 5 reviews demonstrating practices in science laboratory and field classes. Chapter 6 reviews the tutor's role in relation to coursework essays and grading written work. Chapter 7 examines the tutor's role in guidance and support. Chapter 8 is a bridging chapter, which reviews key research findings on student learning. The next four chapters address ways in which part-time staff can enhance effectiveness. Chapter 9 focuses on the value of working with a mentor and sharing ideas with other tutors and demonstrators. Chapter 10 suggests methods for getting feedback on one's teaching and for analyzing and applying the results. Chapter 11 argues for the adoption of a reflective approach to practice. Chapter 12 is a compendium of sources of information. (Many chapters contain references.) (DB)
