Overview

Open this book and you'll enter the classrooms of award-winning faculty. Their classes range from a lab section of nine students to a lecture hall of 400 students with standing room only. You'll observe the teaching style of these professors, their relationships with students, and most importantly, how they solve instructional problems. You'll discover the traits - innate and learned - that set distinguished teachers apart from their colleagues, including an infectious love of learning, high-level problem-solving skills, and a radar-like system that scans and interprets the learning environment. Drawing upon interviews with 30 professors who have received awards for teaching excellence, Baiocco and DeWaters highlight the common characteristics, philosophies, methods, and behaviors that have helped these professors win teaching awards on their campuses.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Based on interviews with 30 award-winning peers, Baiocco (assistant dean, Jacksonville U.) and DeWaters (special education, D'Youville College) propose a problem-solving theory of teaching under pressures for educational reform, and offer tips via case studies on nurturing and evaluating pedagogical excellence. They leave the "back to the future" trend of using student performance to judge teacher competence to others. Survey details and tools for developing professionalism are appended.
