The Science of Learning and the Art of Teaching and its companion activity book provide important information for the new or experienced instructor. Career colleges, two-year colleges, four-year colleges, and universities often have few resources to support educators who struggle each day to effectively teach their students. This text and accompanying companion text with CD-Rom fill that gap. Post Secondary institutions have growing populations and will continue to need new instructors and professors. This text will enable untrained educators to make a successful transition into the classroom. It also offers insight for those already teaching to make more powerful connections with their students. The companion text with CD-Rom provides templates for planning a course syllabus, designing lessons, and activities. The reader will also find sections on what the best teachers do that make a difference, as well as the characteristics of successful students. The book describes research and dominant theories in the neurosciences, studies of cognition and educational psychology in clear, non-technical language and an engaging tone. It highlights key findings and concepts and relates them to the real world of the classroom in a flexible, non-prescriptive, but thorough manner.
