College Teaching: Perspectives and Guidelines
From their own experience and through judicious quotations, the authors offer concrete and practical suggestions to help the young instructor meet his responsibilities effectively. The first half of the book describes the purposes and problems of higher education today in three major components: instructor, student, and curriculum. The second half emphasizes important guidelines that can help in preparing to teach, conducting class, using instructional resources, and evaluating outcomes. The final chapter on the use and preparation of tests, and their relation to grading and other matters, is one of the most instructive, non-technical expositions of the matter available anywhere. The volume should be an excellent textbook for a graduate course on preparation for college teaching.
