Overview

Now in Paperback!

"Masterfully balancing the practitioner's need for concrete suggestions and the scholar's quest for intriguing ideas, this book offers tips to be tried in class tomorrow and ideas to be mused on for months."
—Maryellen Weimer, professor, Penn State University-Berks Campus

"I have used the first edition of Joe Lowman's book for years and found it most helpful. The new edition is a must for teachers and faculty developers."
—Milt Cox, University Director for Teaching Effectivness Programs, Miami University

In this second edition of his classic resource, Joseph Lowman expands on his earlier model of effective teaching to place greater emphasis on motivational skill and commitment to teaching. He presents a practical new learning model that compares six sources of influence on what and how students learn in a college course. All types of teachers and instructors will discover options on how to organize classes and use group work to promote learning. They will also find a checklist for assessing their classroom performance on video, detailed instructions for using video analysis to improve their technique, and an innovative approach to evaluating their overall performance.
