Concepts and Choices for Teaching: Meeting the Challenges in Higher Education
Timpson, William; Bendel-Simso, Paul
Atwood Publishing
Instructors face many choices, and their decisions and actions should be based on certain concepts. Believing that many instructors do not know enough about those concepts and the educational research and theories behind them, the authors brings together a synthesis of what is available in the realm of teaching and learning: theoretical and practical, current and historical. The book contains real-life vignettes of teachers demonstrating each concept discussed, collecting diverse ideas and strategies which have proven useful over time and in a variety of settings. Ten chapters are included in two parts. Part I, Theoretical Overview of Teaching and Learning, contains: (1) The Climate for Learning; (2) Other Issues for Learning; and (3) Development and Conceptualization. Part II, Teaching Strategies, includes: (4) Preparing to Teach; (5) Lecture and Discussion; (6) Encouraging Creativity and Promoting Discovery; (7) Group Learning; (8) Mastery Learning; (9) Metateaching and the Instructional Map; and (10) Peer Feedback and Coaching.
