Teaching and Learning in Honors. National Collegiate Honors Council Monograph Series
Fuiks, Cheryl L., Ed.; Clark, Larry, Ed.
National Collegiate Honors Council
This monograph grew out of the work of the National Collegiate Honors Council (NCHC) Teaching and Learning Committee; it is intended as a basis for discussion among faculty members teaching honors courses. It provides honors directors a resource that may be given to new honors faculty members and a starting point for conversations in new honors programs. More than that, however, it is believed that the articles included will stimulate all honors faculty members to thoughtful reflection and dialogue about their pedagogy. The following contents are included: (1) Introduction (Rinda West); (2) A Review of the Research on Personality Characteristics of Academically Talented College Students (Larry Clark); (3) Fundamental Issues In Honors Teaching: Data. Information. Knowledge. and Wisdom on the Wired Campus (Larry Crockett); (4) Community Building In Honors Education (Linda Rutland Gillison); (5) Teaching Critical Thinking In the Honors Classroom (Laird Edman); (6) Cooperative Learning In Honors Education (Cheryl L. Fuiks); (7) Honors Composition: Thoughts on Pedagogy (Stewart Justman); (8) Promoting Critical Thinking Through Classroom Discussion (William Taylor); (9) Using Technology In the Honors Classroom (Larry Clark and Larry Crockett); (10) A Review of Pedagogy In Honors Courses (Cheryl L. Fuiks and Linda Rutland Gillison); (11) Conclusions (Laird Edman); and (12) Index of Articles on Teaching and Learning In Honors (Cheryl L. Fuiks). An About the Authors section is included.
