Improving the Quality of Instruction through a Service Teaching Framework
Husband, Terry
Journal of Effective Teaching, v13 n2 p73-82 2013
Many professors lack sufficient pedagogical training needed to teach their courses effectively. In an effort to aid professors in improving the quality of instruction in their courses, this article distills the principles embedded within a service teaching framework for instruction. The principles discussed throughout this article pertain to: establishing relationships with students, formative assessment practices, responding to negative issues in a positive manner, valuing and validating students' perspectives, and exceeding course requirements. I conclude with a discussion of three important actions needed for this framework to be implemented successfully.
