In this comprehensive resource, Raymond J. Wlodkowski and Margery B. Ginsberg describe how to meet the challenge of teaching intensive and accelerated courses to nontraditional learners and working adults. By making motivation and cultural relevance essential to instruction, they clearly show what instructors can do to enhance learning in classes that can last from three to six hours. Teaching Intensive and Accelerated Courses makes full use of the authors' twenty years of experience researching and teaching accelerated courses, along with selected strategies from Wlodkowski's classic Enhancing Adult Motivation to Learn, to offer tried-and-true practices instructors can use to provide continuously engaging learning. Praise for Teaching Intensive and Accelerated Courses "Part-time teachers who work in accelerated degree programs are an enormous—and grossly underserved—group of adult education faculty. In this indispensable text, Wlodkowski and Ginsberg, two teachers with extensive firsthand experience of accelerated learning formats, provide an accessible, practical, and highly readable guide to engaging learners in these programs. Warm, wise, and down-to-earth, this will be an invaluable resource for teachers in these programs and for faculty developers everywhere."—Stephen D. Brookfield, Distinguished University Professor, University of St. Thomas, Minnesota "Whether you are an experienced teacher of accelerated courses or about to become a new one, I can't think of a better guide and standard-setter than this book. Wlodkowski and Ginsberg have created an instructional theory with practices that mirror the very principles and processes they advocate. Central to their thesis is the need to create conditions that will allow adults' natural desire to learn to emerge; in my view, this perspective is often lost in adult learning courses in the name of efficiency or productivity. That is one of the many reasons this book is refreshing in both its approach and the values it espouses."—Pamela Tate, president and CEO, The Council for Adult and Experiential Learning "What a helpful resource for faculty professional development! The information is strategic without being formulaic. New faculty can use this book as a resource to design their materials and to use their existing skills to help adults learn. The parts of this book that focus on graduate students are extremely insightful."—Victoria Gardner, director, Office of Multicultural Affairs, University of Washington School of Medicine

When the first edition of Diversity and Motivation was published in 1995, it became a premier resource for faculty and administrators seeking effective and practical strategies that foster motivation among culturally diverse student groups. This revised and updated second edition of Diversity and Motivation offers a comprehensive understanding of teaching methods that promote respect, relevance, engagement, and academic success. Margery B. Ginsberg and Raymond J. Wlodkowski base their insights and concrete suggestions on their experiences and research as college faculty. The book defines norms, illustrates practices, and provides tools to develop four foundational conditions for intrinsically motivated learning: establishing inclusion, developing a positive attitude, enhancing meaning, and engendering competence. The authors provide perspectives on the social justice implications of each condition. Diversity and Motivation includes resources to help educators create a supportive community of learners, facilitate equitable discussions in linguistically diverse classrooms, design engaging lessons, and assess students fairly. The ideas in this book apply across disciplines and include teaching practices that can be easily adapted to a range of postsecondary settings. In addition, the authors include a cohesive approach to syllabus construction, lesson design, and faculty development. This new edition also contains a framework for motivating students outside traditional classroom settings.

In this important volume, the authors focus on the connections between academic learning and student affairs. Beginning with the premise that academic learning is a critical part of the overall personal development of each student, the authors show how student affairs professionals can work in harmony with their academic colleagues to create a campus milieu that is truly conducive to that development. Such a milieu would offer a rich array of social, athletic, academic, and artistic events, all of which would enrich, enhance, and give deeper meaning to the learning that occurs in the classroom. With its emphasis upon partnership building and interdisciplinary collaboration, this work will be extremely useful to student affairs professionals, college administrators, and faculty members as they work together to design courses and programs that will optimize student learning.
