It also offers methods, techniques, and activities that can be applied in classrooms to create more inclusive learning spaces.

A practical, accessible reference manual designed to improve the teaching of beginning, mid-career, or senior faculty members. Addresses the traditional tasks of teaching, as well as issues of diversity and inclusion, technology and teaching in large classrooms, among many others.
This book, the conclusion of a fifteen-year study, defines best practices exhibited by nearly one hundred college teachers in a wide variety of fields and universities. It discusses what teachers know, how they prepare and conduct classes, their expectations and evaluations of themselves and their students, and offers practical advice for fostering strategic learning.

Drawing on research from multiple disciplines (cognitive, developmental, and social psychology; educational research; anthropology; demographics; organizational behavior) this book identifies a set of key principles underlying learning. It integrates theory with real-classroom examples to help faculty improve their own teaching.
