Ayala, Ricardo A.; Koch, Tomas F.; Messing, Helga B. – Ethnography and Education, 2019
One of the most fundamental innovations in higher education is the introduction of the method known as problem-based learning (PBL).

This article situates Felski's approach in the context of the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) on…

O'Connell, John P. – Chemical Engineering Education, 2019
Thermodynamics challenges teachers and learners. Its pervasiveness about nature, mathematical abstractness, nonnumerical relations, and complexity in applications can inhibit understanding and usage, especially by undergraduates. Perspectives are given about these obstacles, and some suggestions are made to enhance comprehension of the discipline.

Johnson, David – Change: The Magazine of Higher Learning, 2019
There is a growing and inexplicable trend among professors to voluntarily fade into the online pedagogical background and allow someone--or something--to do the teaching for them.

Pawlett-Jackson, Sarah P. – Arts and Humanities in Higher Education: An International Journal of Theory, Research and Practice, 2019
In this paper, I examine some of the presuppositions that underpin the practice and interpretation of multi-person dialogue -- that is, in contexts involving more than two interlocutors -- with particular thought for the university seminar. I outline the 'dialogical phenomenology' of Beata Stawarska as useful on this count; however, I argue that…
