Overview

In this thought-provoking collection of personal essays, a diverse group of professors describe what they actually do in the classroom and in their personal lives to balance the tension between teaching and research. Some of the themes Researchers Hooked on Teaching discusses are teachers as models for each other and their students, individualism versus collectivism in the institution and the classroom, and finding one's voice. This insightful new book suggests that if scholars are to be teachers, then their ability to integrate teaching and research is basic to their well-being over the course of their career, and is probably a predictor of classroom effectiveness as well. Students and scholars in the field of organizational studies - and particularly students who aspire to academic careers - will find this a helpful resource. Other areas to which Researchers Hooked on Teaching will be applicable include gender studies, sociology, psychology, and courses in teacher training.
