From the Publisher"Her advice is well grounded in research and consistently reflectsbest practices. Whereas some books in this area reflect theauthor's experiences or received wisdom, Davis draws on recentscholarship of teaching and learning to support her assertions.
There are many strengths to this book. First, it is helpfullyorganized as a reference guide. Readers can consult chapters asneeded and do not have to read it from cover to cover. It is easyto find targeted suggestions to enhance performance or remedy aproblem in a specific area. Moreover, Davis writes concisely and invery practical terms. Second, Tools for Teaching isapplicable to a wide range of audiences across disciplines andexperience levels.
In sum, this updated edition of Tools for Teaching is athorough compendium of effective teaching practices. If I were toselect only one book to give to a colleague or graduate student tohelp him or her teach, it would be this text."
