Teaching Naked Techniques : A Practical Guide to Designing Better Classes (Paperback) (Jose Antonio
About this item
Technology provides new ways for students to receive first contact with material, enhanced opportunities to connect and create community, better ways to ensure that students are prepared for class, and new options for the sequence of learning encounters and activities. “Teaching Naked” is really about rethinking the how, where, when, and what of technology. José Bowen’s Teaching Naked Cycle provides higher education professionals with a practical, student-centered way to increase opportunities for interactivity.Teaching Naked Techniques helps higher education faculty create more effective and engaging lessons--or groups of lessons--on a wide range of topics. Based on Bowen’s Teaching Naked Cycle, the book focuses on each step of class preparation from the student’s perspective. There is a chapter on each step in the cycle with an abundance of discipline-specific examples (10-20 for each concept) plus additional resources. The book helps faculty take the first step in adopting this new pedagogy; by the final chapter, readers will learn how to implement larger (e.g. entire course) redesign projects. As the “Techniques” title implies, faculty can turn to this book to find multiple ideas at different points throughout the semester.
