A survey of 708 Australian college teachers nominated by their department heads or deans as exemplary practitioners, and interviews with 44 participants, identified common themes and issues reflecting academics' understanding of effective teaching, including love of the discipline; valuing students and their perspectives; and taking pleasure in making learning possible. Factors influencing development of quality college instruction are discussed. (Author/MSE)
