Teachers are the "lone rangers" of education. They are sequestered in their classrooms, unable to see what their colleagues are doing. All too often, good teachers have few, if any, opportunities to share their teaching techniques with others in their profession.

Based on the development of the Carnegie Academy for the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning, Into the Classroom clearly shows the advantages of bringing teaching into the public arena and making it possible for many people to see the nature and quality of the teaching that goes on inside schools. Once teaching is more public we can create unprecedented opportunities for teachers to learn from one another and for others to participate constructively in supporting and improving schools. Into the Classroom outlines the myriad issues that must be addressed in order for the teaching profession to become a true learning profession.

ISBN: 0787975680
Publication Date: 2004-05-21
Changing our colleges and universities into learning institutions has become increasingly important while also becoming more difficult. Faculty learning communities have proven to be effective for addressing institutional challenges, from preparing the faculty of the future and reinvigorating senior faculty, to implementing new courses, curricula, and campus initiatives on diversity and technology. The results of faculty learning community programs parallel for faculty members the results of student learning communities for students, such as retention, deeper learning, respect for other cultures, and greater civic participation. The chapters in this issue of New Directions for Teaching and Learning describe from a practitioner's perspective the history, development, implementation, and results of faculty learning communities across a wide range of institutions and purposes. Institutions are invited to use this volume to initiate faculty learning communities on their campuses.

How Learning Works - Ambrose, Susan A. ; Michael W. Bridges; Michele DiPietro; Marsha C. Lovett; Marie K. Norman; Richard E. Mayer (Foreword by)
Call Number: McK Stacks LB1025.3 .H68 2010
ISBN: 9780470484104
Publication Date: Jossey-Bass higher and adult education series. San Francisco, CA : Jossey-Bass, ©2010.
Any conversation about effective teaching must begin with a consideration of how students learn. However, instructors may find a gap between resources that focus on the technical research on learning and those that provide practical classroom strategies. How Learning Works provides the bridge for such a gap. In this volume, the authors introduce seven general principles of learning, distilled from the research literature as well as from twenty-seven years of experience working one-on-one with college faculty. They have drawn on research from a breadth of perspectives (cognitive, developmental, and social psychology; educational research; anthropology; demographics; and organizational behavior) to identify a set of key principles underlying learning-from how effective organization enhances retrieval and use of information to what impacts motivation. These principles provide instructors with an understanding of student learning that can help them see why certain teaching approaches are or are not supporting student learning, generate or refine teaching approaches and strategies that more effectively foster student learning in specific contexts, and transfer and apply these principles to new courses. For anyone who wants to improve his or her students' learning, it is crucial to understand how that learning works and how to best foster it. This vital resource is grounded in learning theory and based on research evidence, while being easy to understand and apply to college teaching.

What the Best College Teachers Do - Bain, Ken
Call Number: McK Stacks LB2331 .B34 2004; SG Stacks LB2331 .B34 2004
ISBN: 0674013255
Publication Date: Cambridge, Mass. : Harvard University Press, 2004.
What makes a great teacher great? Who are the professors students remember long after graduation? This book, the conclusion of a fifteen-year study, offers valuable answers for all educators. The short answer is--it's not what teachers do, it's what they understand. Lesson plans and lecture notes matter less than the special way teachers comprehend the subject and value human learning. Whether historians or physicists, in El Paso or St. Paul, the best teachers know their subjects inside and out--but they also know how to engage and challenge students and to provoke impassioned responses. Most of all, they believe in two things: that teaching matters, and that students can learn. Bain describes examples of ingenuity and compassion, of students' discoveries of new ideas and the depth of their own potential. This book is a source of insight and inspiration for first-year teachers and seasoned educators.

Such a framework is clearly described and exemplified by this book. University teachers can readily adapt the ideas here to their own subjects and teaching conditions.

Higher Education in America - Bok, Derek Curtis
Call Number: UMCP has ebook
ISBN: 9781400848300
Publication Date: Princeton, N.J. : Princeton University Press, ©2013.
At a time when colleges and universities have never been more important to the lives and opportunities of students or to the progress and prosperity of the nation, Bok provides a thorough examination of the entire system, public and private, from community colleges and small liberal arts colleges to great universities with their research programs and their medical, law, and business schools. Drawing on the most reliable studies and data, he determines which criticisms of higher education are unfounded or exaggerated, which are issues of genuine concern, and what can be done to improve matters. Some of the subjects considered are long-standing, such as debates over the undergraduate curriculum and concerns over rising college costs. Others are more recent, such as the rise of for-profit institutions and massive open online courses (MOOCs). Additional topics include the quality of undergraduate education, the stagnating levels of college graduation, the problems of university governance, the strengths and weaknesses of graduate and professional education, the environment for research, and the benefits and drawbacks of the pervasive competition among American colleges and universities. Offering a rare survey and evaluation of American higher education as a whole, this book provides a solid basis for a fresh public discussion about what the system is doing right, what it needs to do better, and how the next quarter century could be made a period of progress rather than decline.

Teaching Naked - Bowen, José Antonio
Call Number: EBook available from all USM libraries.
ISBN: 9781118224281
Publication Date: Hoboken : John Wiley & Sons, 2012.
Introducing a new way to think about higher education, learning, and technology that prioritizes the benefits of the human dimension. José Bowen recognizes that technology is profoundly changing education and that if students are going to continue to pay enormous sums for campus classes, colleges will need to provide more than what can be found online and maximize "naked"face-to-face contact with faculty. Here, he illustrates how technology is most powerfully used outside the classroom, and, when used effectively, how it can ensure that students arrive to class more prepare.

Pedagogies for the future : leading quality learning and teaching in higher education - Brandenburg, R.; Wilson, J.
Call Number: UMCP has ebook
ISBN: 9789462092785
Publication Date: Rotterdam ; Boston : SensePublishers, ©2013.
Pedagogies for the Future illustrates a unique and exciting endeavor whereby a group of academics across one university developed a professional learning community for the purposes of investigating, articulating and developing their scholarship of practice. Through their collaborative efforts, these educator-researchers sit at the forefront of calls to take teaching seriously in higher education and to recognize the powerful potential of interdisciplinary collaboration. The book provides a model for establishing learning communities in higher education and demonstrates that such work is not only possible but also successful. From vision to reality, Pedagogies for the Future offers important insights into the complex nature of researching teaching and learning in higher education from the perspectives of those directly engaged in it. This book will be of great interest and value to both scholars and administrators. Associate Professor Amanda Berry Leiden University, The Netherlands Pedagogies for the Future is an ambitious but critically important work ... This book reminds us of the complex interactions between culture and pedagogy and the importance of paying the closest possible attention to the effects of how we teach on how and how well our students learn.

Helping Students Learn in a Learner-Centered Environment - Doyle, Terry ; John Tagg (Foreword by)
Call Number: UMCP McK Stacks LB2331 .D66 2008
ISBN: 9781579222215
Publication Date: Sterling, Va. : Stylus Pub., 2008
Before entering higher education, most students' learning experiences have been traditional and teacher-centered. Their teachers have typically controlled their learning, with students having had little say about what and how to learn. For many students, encountering a learner-centered environment will be new, possibly unsettling, and may even engender resistance and hostility. Taking as his starting point students' attitudes toward, and unfamiliarity with, learner-centered classrooms, Terry Doyle explains that motivating students to engage with this practice first of all requires explaining its underlying rationale, and then providing guidance on how to learn in this environment. This book is about how to help students acquire the new skills and knowledge they need to take on unfamiliar roles and responsibilities. It is informed by the author's extensive experience in managing learner-centered classes, and by his consultation work with faculty. The first four chapters focus on the importance of imparting to students the evidence and underlying philosophy that is driving higher education to move from a teacher-centered to a learner-centered practice, and what this means for students in terms of having control over, and making important choices about, their learning. The final eight chapters focus on how to impart the skills that students need to learn or hone if they are to be effective learners in an environment that is new to them. The book covers such practices as learning on one's own; creating meaningful learning when collaborating with others; peer teaching; making presentations; developing life long learning skills; self and peer evaluation; and give meaningful feedback. This book provides a rich and informative answer to the fundamental question: how do I help my students adjust to a learner-centered practice?

The new science of learning : how to learn in harmony with your brain - Doyle, Terry; Zakrajsek, Todd
Call Number: EBook available from UMCP
ISBN: 9781461951926
Publication Date: Sterling, Virginia : Stylus, [2013] ©2013
This book is a must-read for students who want time to have a life while also being able to improve the way they learn.Too frequently, students are left on their own to navigate through a variety of study and learning strategies which are often not based on brain research. Neuroscientists know so much about how the brain learns best. Unfortunately, they do not usually present their discoveries to those involved with teaching and neither instructors nor students have the time to sift through the voluminous amount of neuroscientific research currently available. Fortunately, Terry and Todd have done the sifting for you. This book highlights and summarizes some of the most recent and impactful insights for learning and memory. In particular, it helps students to better understand a learner centered approach to teaching and learning, a movement which is slowly becoming the norm in higher education. It is not only packed with practical applications of current brain research but also describes why the application of these skills and strategies work in light of the brain's design. You don't want to miss being a part of this revolutionary approach to learning!

"Gathering concepts and techniques borrowed from outstanding college professors, The Joy of Teaching provides helpful guidance for new instructors developing and teaching their first college courses." "Award-winning professor Peter Filene proposes that teaching should not be like a baseball game in which the instructor pitches ideas to students to see whether they hit or strike out. Ideally, he says, teaching should resemble a game of Frisbee in which the teacher invites students to catch ideas and pass them on."

The idea of "teaching with your mouth shut" is explored, exemplified, and varied to such an extent that it ultimately specifies a comprehensible approach to teaching - along with a host of concrete teaching possibilities. In the end, not only will your notion of good teaching be transformed, but so too your sense of what may be signified by the word teaching itself."

Clueless in Academe - Graff, Gerald
Call Number: UMCP McK and SG Stacks LC191.94 .G73 2003
ISBN: 0300095589
Publication Date: New Haven : Yale University Press, ©2003.
In an essential book for teachers and others interested in education, an eminent scholar looks at the academic world from a much-overlooked perspective: that of students who don't get it. Gerald Graff argues that our schools and colleges make the intellectual life seem more opaque, specialized, and beyond normal learning capacities than it is or needs to be. Left clueless in the academic world, many students view the life of the mind as a secret society for which only an elite few qualify." "In a refreshing departure from standard diatribes against academia, Graff shows how academic unintelligibility is unwittingly reinforced not only by jargon and obscure writing, but by the disconnection of the curriculum and the failure to exploit the many connections between academia and popular culture. Finally, Graff offers a wealth of practical suggestions for making the culture of ideas and arguments more accessible, showing how students and the wider public can enter the debates that permeate their lives.

Teaching Excellence in Higher Education - Gregory, Melissa Valiska (Editor); Marshall Gregory
ISBN: 9781137379450
Publication Date: 2013-12-11
“In this volume, the culmination of a lifetime’s work as an educator, Marshall Gregory lays out a pedagogical theory and ethical vision for teaching. He argues that teachers across the arts and sciences can reach for teaching excellence by relying on more than good will, good intentions, sincerity, enthusiasm, and trial and error. They can think, individually and collectively, about the educable capacities of the students they teach and about the ultimate aim of their teaching: not to merely impart information or train their students in a discipline, but to develop their students’ abilities for thought, reflection, questioning, and engagement to their fullest extent. Drawing on over forty-five years of teaching and thirty-five years of training teachers to think about pedagogy, Gregory speaks to any teacher wanting to more fully ground the what of teaching in the how and why.”

ISBN: 9780415908085
Publication Date: New York : Routledge, 1994.
In this book, the author shares her philosophy of the classroom, offering ideas about teaching that fundamentally rethink democratic participation. She writes about a new kind of education, education as the practice of freedom. She advocates the process of teaching students to think critically and raises many concerns central to the field of critical pedagogy, linking them to feminist thought. In the process, these essays face squarely the problems of teachers who do not want to teach, of students who do not want to learn, of racism and sexism in the classroom. Teaching students to "transgress" against racial, sexual, and class boundaries in order to achieve the gift of freedom is, for the author, the teacher's most important goal.

It is estimated that up to 20 percent of a professor's time is spent evaluating the impact of instruction. Yet most faculty receive little formal training in classroom testing or other means of determining which students have attained course objectives and which have not. Developing and Using Tests Effectively offers practical guidelines that faculty members can use to improve their skills in the development, administration, and grading of classroom tests." "This book offers specific how-to advice on every stage of the testing process, including planning the test and classifying objectives to be measured, ensuring the validity and reliability of the test, and grading to arrive at fair grades based on relevant data." "Lucy Jacobs and Clinton Chase examine the strengths and weaknesses of many types of tests, including both traditional (multiple-choice, true-false, matching, completion, and essays) and alternative (take-home, open-book, and oral) assessment procedures. For every testing procedure, they show how faculty members can write tests that are fairer and more valid and that do a better job of measuring what students learn - thereby improving faculty members' ability to assess learning outcomes." "The authors reveal, for example, how essay tests may often measure only the skill of the grader in assessing what the writer has said - and offer suggestions for improving the instructor's skill in reading essays and scoring them reliably. They discuss the problem of cheating and suggest ways to deal with it. They examine the advantages and limitations of using computers for classroom testing. And they describe such alternative assessment procedures as portfolios, journals, and peer testing.

Publication Date: Jossey-Bass higher and adult education series. San Francisco : Jossey-Bass Publishers, ©1994.
How do students learn to reason and think about complex issues? This book fills a critical gap in our understanding of a long-neglected facet of the critical thinking process: reflective judgment. Drawing on extensive cross-sectional and longitudinal research, including their own ten-year study, Patricia M. King and Karen Strohm Kitchener detail the series of stages that lay the foundation for reflective thinking, and they trace the development of reflective judgment through adolescence and adulthood. King and Kitchener's new model of reflective judgment is designed to enhance both research and practice in the areas of critical thinking, intellectual development, and education. The authors examine key questions concerning reflective judgment: How do high school, college, and graduate students reason differently about ill-structured problems? Does students' reasoning improve with additional exposure to and involvement in higher education? Do adult learners differ from traditional-age students in their reflective thinking? How does the reasoning of adult college graduates differ from that of non-college-educated adults? The authors also describe the implications of the Reflective Judgment Model for working with students in the classroom and beyond - encouraging educators to think differently about interactions with their students and to create ways of more effectively promoting the ability to make reflective judgments.

The Torch or The Firehose: A Guide to Section Teaching - Mattuck, Arthur
Publication Date: Cambridge, MA: Massachusetts Institute of Technology Open CourseWare, 1981.
The Torch or The Firehose: A Guide to Section Teaching, by MIT Mathematics Professor Arthur Mattuck, is a guide to recitation teaching at MIT. During a typical recitation section, a teaching assistant (TA) meets with a small group of students to review the most recent lecture, expand on the concepts, work through practice problems, and conduct a discussion with the students. With good humor and sound advice, Professor Mattuck offers both novice and seasoned recitation instructors guidelines on how sections can best serve as a complement to lectures, how to help students become better learners, and how to enjoy their experience as recitation teachers. Lecturers claim they have learned something from it, too.

This content was first published as a printed booklet in 1981. This is the second edition. It has had a wide distribution, both at MIT and other universities, since it first appeared. It is finally available in digital format to allow broader distribution and use of this valuable material.

Creativity in the Classroom - McIntosh, Paul (Editor); Digby Warren (Editor)
Call Number: UMCP Mck Lib Stacks LB1062 .C74 2013
ISBN: 9781841505169
Publication Date: Bristol : Intellect ; Chicago, IL : The University Chicago Press, 2013.
The editors of this volume contend that the current paradigm of standardizing Higher Education through an outcomes-dominated approach can constrain the educational process, where teachers may feel pressured to resort to risk-aversive methods that satisfy the learning-outcomes and assessment agenda. As a result, the ability of teachers and learners to inform, critique and develop their understanding of subjects together may be being lost. This book contains a variety of alternative approaches teachers have used to develop ways of 'humanizing' and deepening the learning process, through drawing on the creative arts and humanities - including cinema, literature, dance, drama and visual art - in a range of disciplines, it is argued by the editors that these 'arts-based inquiry' approaches have opened up possibilities for transformative learning as concerned with whole person development through opportunities to connect the-intuitive, emotional, relational and creative with the analytical and logical ways of knowing.

My Freshman Year: what a professor learned by becoming a student - Nathan, Rebekah
Call Number: UMCP McK Stacks LB3605 .N34 2005
ISBN: 9780801443978
Publication Date: Ithaca : Cornell University Press, 2005.
After more than fifteen years of teaching, Rebekah Nathan, a professor of anthropology at a large state university, realized that she no longer understood the behavior and attitudes of her students. Fewer and fewer participated in class discussion, tackled the assigned reading, or came to discuss problems during office hours. And she realized from conversations with her colleagues that they, too, were perplexed: Why were students today so different and so hard to teach? Were they, in fact, more likely to cheat, ruder, and less motivated? Did they care at all about their education, besides their grades? Nathan decided to put her wealth of experience in overseas ethnographic fieldwork to use closer to home and applied to her own university. Accepted on the strength of her high school transcript, she took a sabbatical and enrolled as a freshman for the academic year.

Publisher Synopsis

With the university under constant calls to justify its costs and prove its relevance, this volume of essays couldn't be more timely. Here we have sober reflections on the liberal arts in an age of productivity, assessment, career readiness, and political correctness, each trend threatening in one way or another the cardinal ideals of higher education. Some of the contributors proceed historically, others ethically and philosophically; they invoke Aristotle, Tocqueville, Nietzsche, Dewey, David Rieseman, and Allan Bloom; they range from the highs of liberal education for its own sake to the lows of university marketing strategies; and they expose relevance as a flexible and tactical concept, both an engine of curriculum, a social validation, and a burden of public financing. People confounded by amazing developments such as the labeling of students as 'customers' and data on how little students typically learn during their undergraduate career will find them explained in these pages. Indeed, as the debates over the value and purpose of higher education move forward in the coming years, participants will prosper by assimilating the contents of this volume. -- Mark Bauerlein, Emory University The Relevance of Higher Education is a thought-provoking and highly-readable text that will challenge anyone who proclaims to have the 'final word' on the purpose of universities today. I encourage anyone who cares about the future of higher education to read this text carefully and learn from the impressive collection of authors, from a wide variety of fields, who contributed to it. -- Wesley Null, Baylor University

The theme of zombies is topical and provocative, with the potential to appeal to a wide range of readers. This book is an engaging call for recognition of the conditions of contemporary humanities research, teaching, and cultural and labour practices. The zombie trope offers an unusual perspective into discussions about the current crises in higher education, and the proposed structure of the book allows for the 3 editors to open up interdisciplinary discussion (with their 3 sections covering corporatisation & zombification, digital media & moribund content distribution, and zombie literacies & pedagogies). "Zombies in the Academy" taps into the current popular fascination with zombies and brings together scholars from a range of fields, including cultural and communications studies, sociology, film studies, and education, to give a critical account of the political, cultural, and pedagogical state of the university through the metaphor of zombiedom.

"The grading process can yield rich information about student learning. Effective Grading enables faculty to go beyond using grades as isolated artifacts and helps them make classroom grading processes more fair, time-efficient, and conducive to learning. Classroom assessment of student learning can then contribute to departmental and general-education assessment in ways that meet the needs of institutions and accrediting agencies."--BOOK JACKET. "Tailored to specific needs of faculty members who seek to make grading a valuable part of student learning and motivation, Effective Grading balances assessment theory and hands-on advice. It offers an in-depth examination of the link between teaching and grading and provides concrete guidance on such critical steps as setting and communicating grading standards, developing assignments to grade, managing time spent on grading, and providing feedback for students."

Call Number: UMCP McKeldin Stacks LB2395.7 .W45 2002
ISBN: 0787956139
Publication Date: 2001-11-12
In this book, Weigel shows how faculty can help students develop skills in research, problem solving, critical thinking, and knowledge management by using web-based collaboration tools. He outlines a blended, "bricks and clicks" approach to learning that emphasizes cognitive apprenticeship and communities of inquiry. Weigel's vision of "depth education" relies strongly on virtual teams and embedded assessment as a means to cultivate connection between students and educators.

This innovative approach to teaching and learning emphasizes the use of virtual spaces, which Weigel calls "knowledge rooms," where students can gather to develop research projects, build critical skills and competencies, share, discuss, and debate ideas, express themselves creatively, and assess their learning and performance. Learning gained through such collaborative environments is deep learning, with lasting impact, and stands in sharp contrast to the superficial acquisition of factual knowledge students typically take away from their college coursework.

"What can Cultural Historical Activity Theory (CHAT) contribute to the solution of the problems facing higher education today? This edited volume brings together the work of an international group of scholars and researchers to address this important question. Drawing on contemporary interpretations of CHAT, the contributors take on a wide range of issues, ranging from pedagogy to administration and from teacher preparation to university outreach. An introduction presents the key principles of CHAT. Subsequent chapters address such issues as effective ways of teaching large undergraduate classes, providing support for struggling writers or for students with disabilities, opening up opportunities for students from historically underserved communities, preparing students for the professions, and building bridges between higher education and the wider community. Readers with an interest in higher education will encounter ideas in these chapters that will prompt them to rethink their role in preparing today's students for tomorrow's challenges"

What is understanding and how does it differ from knowledge? How can we determine the big ideas worth understanding? Why is understanding an important teaching goal, and how do we know when students have attained it? How can we create a rigorous and engaging curriculum that focuses on understanding and leads to improved student performance in today s high-stakes, standards-based environment? Authors Grant Wiggins and Jay McTighe answer these and many other questions in this second edition of Understanding by Design. Drawing on feedback from thousands of educators around the world who have used the UbD framework since its introduction in 1998, the authors have greatly revised and expanded their original work to guide educators across the K 16 spectrum in the design of curriculum, assessment, and instruction. With an improved UbD Template at its core, the book explains the rationale of backward design and explores in greater depth the meaning of such key ideas as essential questions and transfer tasks. Readers will learn why the familiar coverage- and activity-based approaches to curriculum design fall short, and how a focus on the six facets of understanding can enrich student learning. With an expanded array of practical strategies, tools, and examples from all subject areas, the book demonstrates how the research-based principles of Understanding by Design apply to district frameworks as well as to individual units of curriculum. Combining provocative ideas, thoughtful analysis, and tested approaches, Understanding by Design, 2nd edition, offers teacher-designers a clear path to the creation of curriculum that ensures better learning and a more stimulating experience for students and teachers alike.
