Revisiting the Art of Undergraduate Teaching in Higher Education: One Person's Journey towards Enlightenment
Douglas, Max E.
Journal of Effective Teaching, v14 n2 p69-82 2014
The purpose of this article is to offer reflections regarding teaching undergraduate students spanning a forty-five year career in higher education. The author discusses his teaching philosophy coupled with his perspective focusing on the "best" pedagogical practices that he has used to enhance student learning. The selected methods are grounded in over ninety semesters of classroom teaching experience much of which is empirically supported by scholarly literature. Hopefully the author's sharing of his life-long journey and commitment to undergraduate education will help sustain dialogue about the importance of pedagogical excellence.
