About this item

Despite a growing body of research on teaching methods, instructors lack a comprehensive resource that highlights and synthesizes proven approaches.Teaching for Learning fills that gap. Each of the one hundred and one entries:

  • describes an approach and lists its essential features and elements

  • demonstrates how that approach has been used in education, including specific examples from different disciplines

  • reviews findings from the research literature

  • describes techniques to improve effectiveness.

Teaching for Learning provides instructors with a resource grounded in the academic knowledge base, written in an easily accessible, engaging, and practical style.

Few institutions adequately prepare doctoral students for teaching. Instead, future faculty are prepared for research, and most professors will have had no formal preparation or professional development for teaching. Those who do have familiarity with different methodologies frequently have questions about what works best in which situations and for which students. We may not be teaching students as well as we could in institutions of higher education and faculty preparation may be at issue.
