How Practice Is Shaped by Personal Theories.
Rando, William C.; Menges, Robert J.
New Directions for Teaching and Learning, n45 p7-14 Spr 1991
Every college teacher has a professional obligation to formulate and articulate a rationale for his or her instructional world. Faculty members' personal theories about teaching and learning are often implicit and likely to be inaccurate. When implicit theories become explicit, they can blend with formal theories to improve the practice of instruction. (MSE)
