The University Teacher as Artist.
Axelrod, Joseph
The focus of this book is on the art of university teaching. Its aim is to help professors develop their own aesthetics of teaching and raise their daily classroom practice to the level of art. Part 1 presents four models of evocative teaching and portraits, taken from life, of four professors who illustrate these prototypes in the fields of art history, foreign language, interdisciplinary humanities, and English literature. Part 2 presents a different kind of portrait by means of complete transcripts of three class meetings taught by the same professor of literature over a twelve-year period. Part 3 uses systems analysis to describe the university setting in which the professor must try to practice the art of teaching. Part 4 deals with educational reform--from reform of the grading system to the creation of experimental colleges. (WR)
