Colleges are becoming increasingly concerned with the quality of undergraduate instruction, and faculty are devoting more attention to improving their teaching skills. This volume will help college faculty improve their performance in the classroom. The book contains useful theoretical information on the learning styles of college students, and it presents practical information on how to teach courses in particular disciplines. The chapter authors are widely recognized as master teachers. The information at the beginning of the book summarizes and evaluates current research in cognitive psychology and student learning styles. The bulk of the volume then provides practical information on college teaching. A set of chapters stresses the advantages of different instructional methods, while other chapters are devoted to teaching particular disciplines in the arts and sciences. The book also presents information on related issues, such as working with at-risk students, classroom management, textbook selection, and grading. This professional reference will be an indispensable tool for college professors in all disciplines.
