Praise for Effective Teaching with Technology in Higher Education " This is not one of those technology-is-the-panacea-for-all-educational-ills books- that' s why I liked it. Much more sensibly, it takes the position that in certain contexts and for particular purposes technology can promote better teaching and more learning." - Maryellen Weimer, editor, The Teaching Professor " Distance education deans, coordinators, instructors, trainers, and instructional designer will all benefit from the information Bates and Poole share with their readers. They elaborate on the steps to teaching with technology- from vision to design to implementation to maintenance." - Judith Norton, director of training, California Virtual Campus, Professional Development Center " This book is a comprehensive resource for educators- by educators. It answers the questions that we all face as we strive to increase access and improve the quality of ourdistance education programs." - Bill Sollecito, director, Public Health Leadership Program, School of Public Health, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill " Finally! A faculty-centered tech book! Bates and Poole are faculty and write for faculty who want to lighten their work-load and heighten student learning. A must for today' s faculty, regardless of discipline." - Laura L. B. Border, director, Graduate Teacher Program, University of Colorado, Boulder

Based on the author's work in science and engineering educational research, this book offers broad, practical strategies for teaching science and engineering courses and describes how faculty can provide a learning environment that helps students comprehend the nature of science, understand science concepts, and solve problems in science courses. This book's student?centered approach focuses on two main themes: writing to learn (especially Reflective Writing) and interactive activities (collaborative groups and labatorials). When faculty incorporate these methods into their courses, students gain a better understanding of science as a connected structure of concepts rather than as a toolkit of assorted practices.

As societal expectations about attending college have grown, professors report increasing numbers of students who are unprepared for the rigors of postsecondary education—not just more students with learning disabilities (whose numbers have more than tripled), but students (with and without special admission status) who are academically at-risk because of inadequate reading, writing and study skills. This book provides professors and their graduate teaching assistants—those at the front line of interactions with students—with techniques and approaches they can use in class to help at-risk students raise their skills so that they can successfully complete their studies. The author shares proven practices that will not only engage all students in a class, but also create the conditions—while maintaining high standards and high expectations—to enable at-risk and under-prepared students to develop academically and graduate with good grades. The author also explains how to work effectively with academic support units on campus. Within the framework of identifying those students who need help, establishing a rapport with them, adopting inclusive teaching strategies, and offering appropriate guidance, the book presents the theory teachers will need, and effective classroom strategies. The author covers teaching philosophy and goals; issues of discipline and behavior; motivation and making expectations explicit; classroom climate and learning styles; developing time management and study skills; as well as the application of “universal design” strategies. The ideas presented here—that the author has successfully employed over many years—can be easily integrated into any class.

This book explores successful transition strategies to, within and from university for students from around the globe, with Macquarie University, a large Australian university, studied in depth. It addresses the meaning of success taking a variety of perspectives, including student, staff and employer views. The chapters present a series of initiatives that have proven to be successful in assisting students in developing their academic potential throughout university and beyond. The authors of the chapters use a variety of methodologies and approaches reflecting the diverse local contexts and requirements. These international perspectives demonstrate a triumph of practice that has led to the empowerment of individuals and groups. The approaches from twelve universities located in eight different countries stem directly from the coalface and provide many valuable lessons and tools that colleagues in the sector will be able to consider and adapt in their own contexts. Small interventions matter, from a mentor of a nervous student who goes on to achieve greatness, to the use of a curriculum design model that hooks a whole group of students into learning and achievement. This book covers both the small, individual victories and the larger scale strategies that support success. Contributions emanate from Australia, Bangladesh, India, China, New Zealand, United Kingdom, Canada, USA, Uruguay and South Africa.
