- Available for pre-order. Item will ship after September 29, 2021
This book explores pedagogical change and innovation in U.S. colleges and universities and how faculty are prepared to adapt to such changes.
Drawing from interviews with faculty developers at Centers for Teaching and Learning at research and teaching-focused institutions across the U.S., this book explores how traditional forms of pedagogy are shifting toward student-centered and student-directed forms of learning. The book unpacks the historical development of changes in teaching, drawing from research in teaching within particular domains such as diversity, equity, and inclusion in higher education, community-based teaching and learning, online and hybrid teaching and learning, course design, interdisciplinary teaching and learning, assessment of teaching, and the scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL).
This is an invaluable resource for faculty, graduate students and scholars of Higher Education, and Faculty Developers looking to promote a culture of continual renewal and innovation at their institutions.
