Effective Teaching: A Guide for Community College Instructors
Stewart, Deborah A.
American Association of Community Colleges
This guide combines both theory and practice and focuses on the role of faculty in engaging students, celebrating learning, and developing students' skills. Learning is a collective enterprise--ongoing, always unfinished, exciting, transformational--as much for instructors and staff as for students. The guide attempts to capture that spirit of learning in its approach to teaching, providing guidelines and suggestions that have proven effective in the classroom. In addition, there are opportunities here for instructors to reflect on their values and goals. The guide's contents are presented as follows: (1) Introduction; Part 1: The Community College Setting; Part 2: Community College Students; Part 3: Course Planning Throughout the Semester; and Part 4: Developing Skills as an Instructor. The guide also contains a preface, information about the author, and an index. Appended is a list of resources for instructors.
