Overview

In a time when society and student bodies are growing increasingly diverse, and new information technologies continue to be introduced to higher education, teaching and learning has become ever more challenging—and important. A fascinating collection of essays written by 19 Carnegie Professors of the Year from colleges and universities across the United States and Canad, Inspiring Teaching affirms the scholarship of teaching by recognizing and encouraging excellence in teaching.

The 20 chapters in this book range from the pragmatic to the philosophical, including discussions of active learning, classroom atmosphere, learning communities, honors programs, large-class discussions, teaching portfolios, and community service. The book is divided into four parts:

  • Part One, Teaching Characteristics, explores what good teaching is, the type of classroom atmosphere that supports it, and the nature of fruitful teacher-student relationships
  • Part Two, Teaching Practices, discusses improving teaching through curriculum, classroom discussions, and teaching portfolios
  • Part Three, Teaching Philosophies, considers teaching in relation to civic engagement
  • Part Four, Teaching Teachers: Two Postscripts, summarizes the successful models for teaching used by the Carnegie Professors of the Year

Designed to stimulate discussion of teaching among scholars, Inspiring Teaching analyzes what underlies and inspires good teaching and learning.
