eXtreme Teaching: A Framework for Continuous Improvement
Andersson, Roy; Bendix, Lars
Computer Science Education, v16 n3 p175-184 Sep 2006
Many universities have experienced an increase in the intake of students and at the same time cuts in the budgets for teaching. Many teachers have discovered, for a number of reasons, that they have to adjust their teaching or even a course with short notice. These facts pose a challenge to the teachers' agility in adapting to changes--and in doing it in a cost-efficient way. We propose eXtreme Teaching as a framework that allows teachers to focus on experimenting with and improving their teaching techniques without compromising quality. The framework and the associated practices provide quick, accurate feedback that teachers can act on. eXtreme Teaching will allow better student learning, stronger relationships with the students, increased interaction and development of the staff involved, less risk--and probably happier staff members. In this paper, we will describe the eXtreme Teaching framework and discuss and motivate its background. (Contains 1 figure.)
