Using empirical research, Effective College and University Teaching: Strategies and Tactics for the New Professoriate gives faculty and graduate teaching assistants the tools for understanding why certain teaching practices work and how to adjust their teaching to changing classroom room and online environments. The majority of books on college and university teaching are "how to" books. This book takes a unique approach and provides both the rationale and a detailed guide for how to use and teach these practices to others. Written by leading scholars and expert master teachers, this book outlines, reviews, and discusses the best practices for preparing graduate students to become effective in their duties as teaching assistants and as teachers of record and for new faculty teaching earlier in their careers. The book provides full coverage of those topics central to developing efficacious training practices aimed at the professional development of teachers at the college and university level.

"A comprehensive guide to the uses and possible abuses of the lecture method. Supported by copious research, Bligh offers a wealth of practical suggestions for making lectures more engaging and effective. Written in an accessible and helpful style, What's the Use of Lectures? should be required reading for all college teachers who use this method." --Stephen Brookfield, Distinguished Professor, University of St. Thomas, St. Paul, Minnesota "A rewarding read for anyone who lectures--experienced or not. I wish we had a book this engaging and this informative on every element of the teaching art." --Michele Marincovich, assistant vice provost and director, Center for Teaching and Learning, Stanford University "A source of great insight for people who teach.... Bligh has spent more time and energy than anyone else in coming to terms with a task that bothers many teachers and trainers.... His research is impeccable and his conclusions are immensely practical. The new edition will be much welcomed." --Alex Main, founding coordinator of Academic Staff Development for the British Universities, Murdoch University, Australia In this first American edition of a best-selling classic, Donald Bligh draws from decades of research and hands-on experience to help college and university teachers develop and use lectures effectively. What's the Use of Lectures? is an indispensable guide for anyone who aspires to be a skilled lecturer and teacher. It examines the nature of teaching and learning in a classroom lecture--describing how students learn, how much knowledge they retain, and how to enhance their attention and motivation. Bligh builds on this information to share strategies for creating organized, thoughtful, and effective lectures. Topics include taking notes, using handouts, practicing different formats and styles, obtaining feedback, overcoming difficulties, evaluating the lecture, and testing alternative methods when lecturing is not adequate. Also included are tables and diagrams to illustrate different approaches to lecturing.

"Robert DiYanni and Anton Borst's Classroom Confidential provides a clear, compact guide to the basics of college teaching. Grounded in the authors' classroom experience, their pedagogical coaching at NYU's Center for the Advancement of Teaching, and their examination of the latest learning science research, it explains how to teach in the college classroom from a learner's perspective-what methods, principles, and activities achieve the best learning outcomes. Chapters address major topics from course and syllabus design to discussion-based teaching, critical reading, and assessment, while brief "interludes" cover various pedagogical elements and applications-including what to do on the first and last days of class and how to incorporate service and experiential learning into curricula. Throughout, the authors provide practical suggestions and strategies, while explaining the underlying pedagogical principles. They also address recent topics that promise to remain fixtures of the educational landscape, such as teaching with technology and teaching in a global context. They steer a middle course on technology, suggesting ways to maximize its benefits while minimizing its distractions. The book coheres around a philosophy of active learning and student engagement. DiYanni and Borst argue that teaching practices should challenge students to think and learn, requiring them to do things with newly acquired knowledge-create models, conduct experiments, debate issues, and more. The authors enlist reliable scholarly research to demonstrate that active learning, of the kind they advocate, achieves results: students learn more and better, and their learning is deeper and longer lasting. The authors' pedagogy echoes their epistemology, as they demonstrate how learning and teaching are inextricably intertwined, organic rather than mechanical activities"--

A typical workday for a university professor might include addressing 400 first-year students in a huge lecture auditorium, and—in the same day—coaching a single, nervous, and uncertain doctoral student who is struggling to complete her dissertation. (Don’t even ask about the research, writing, and committee meetings.) As this professor, you might cope by figuring out lessons and sessions on the fly, or you might dig into memories of what you learned from your own teachers. Over the years, university students have shown that they need to learn and communicate in a variety of ways, and with a range of new technology. Professors must adapt to this environment and continue to mentor well-prepared, analytical students by being inspired and inspiring teachers. In these essays, the contributors trace the many ways that professors have achieved excellence. New university professors will find guidance and insight in these essays, which also contain reflections by university students. What skills and knowledge did they learn? How did their values and beliefs transform? At the end of their degree, were they same people that they were upon university entrance?

Syracuse University was one of the first major universities to develop a summer internship program to train the hundreds of new teaching assistants appointed each year. An outgrowth of that program, this book contains essays that represent a thoughtful effort by experienced teachers - many of whom have been involved with the national Preparing Future Faculty program - to explore various ways of engaging, encouraging, and stimulating students to learn. Topics cover lecturing, leading discussions, designing laboratory and studio courses, teaching for diversity, using technology, assessing student learning, and service learning.
