Teaching Tips for College and University Instructors is a useful manual, a practical guide for the newest classroom teachers in higher education that provides down-to-earth advice for new assistant professors, teaching assistants, adjuncts, and doctoral students. This book provides a wealth of suggestions, techniques, and ideas for the novice instructor. It does not promote a particular teaching style or theoretical orientation, but draws upon recent research findings and years of experience in "the trenches" of higher education. There are helpful hints on such topics as writing the syllabus, how to handle complaints about "unfair" test questions and grades, how to prevent cheating, improving teaching performance, use of active learning techniques, and more effective lecturing. Using short "mini" essays and chapters, the whole spectrum of teaching at the post-secondary level is covered from the instructor's first day jitters to preparing a tenure portfolio. For new assistant professors, teaching assistants, adjuncts, doctoral students, and experienced college faculty.

The Adjunct Faculty Handbook, Second Edition provides a full range of academic leaders and adjunct faulty with a much-needed, practical resource to manage the work of adjunct faculty teaching. Since the publication of the first edition in 1996, the number of adjunct faculty members in colleges and universities has increased spectacularly, to the point that most colleges and universities could not function efficiently without them. The revised edition has been updated to address the dramatic changes in higher education that result from institutional dependence on adjunct faculty as well as the striking changes in higher education (such as the role of technology in teaching and learning, the increased emphasis on student evaluations and learning outcomes assessment, and changes in classroom dynamics) in which adjunct faculty must be proficient.

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.

Research indicates that of the pedagogies recognized as “high impact”, learning communities – one approach to which, the linked course, is the subject of this book – lead to an increased level of student engagement in the freshman year that persists through the senior year, and improve retention. This book focuses on the learning community model that is the most flexible to implement in terms of scheduling, teacher collaboration, and design: the linked course. The faculty may teach independently or together, coordinating syllabi and assignments so that the classes complement each other, and often these courses are linked around a particular interdisciplinary theme. Creating a cohort that works together for two paired courses motivates students, while the course structure promotes integrative learning as students make connections between disciplines. This volume covers both “linked courses” in which faculty may work to coordinate syllabi and assignments, but teach most of their courses separately, as well as well as “paired courses” in which two or more courses are team taught in an integrated program in which faculty participate as learners as well as teachers. Part One, Linked Course Pedagogies, includes several case studies of specific linked courses, including a study skills course paired with a worldview course; a community college course that challenges students’ compartmentalized thinking; and a paired course whose outcomes can be directly compared to parallel stand-alone courses Part Two, Linked Course Programs, includes a description of several institutional programs representing a variety of linked course program models. Each chapter includes information about program implementation, staffing logistics and concerns, curriculum development, pedagogical strategies, and faculty development. Part Three, Assessing Linked Courses, highlights the role of assessment in supporting, maintaining, and improving linked course programs by sharing assessment models and describing how faculty and administrators have used particular assessment practices in order to improve their linked course programs.
