Release: 2010-04-22
Editor: Columbia University Press

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

Drawing from her extensive classroom and field experience, Jeane W. Anastas merges the "practice wisdom" of today's social work educators with contemporary theories on instruction and learning. Built around a teacher- and student-in-situation framework, Teaching in Social Work examines the effect of social issues, professional norms and needs, and various educational settings on the interactions among educators, students, and the subjects they learn. The result is a singular volume that focuses specifically on teaching within the field of social work, identifying the factors that result in effective educational outcomes. Anastas draws on the theories and selected research findings of higher education and social work education literature. She illuminates the critical aspects of teaching and learning as an adult, the best uses of different modalities of instruction, and the issues of diversity that influence all aspects of teaching and learning. Her book includes guest-authored chapters on field learning and the latest advances in teaching technology. It also engages with ethics, teaching and learning assessments, and faculty work in full-time social work education.

Pages: 232
ISBN: 9781579228279
Release: 2013-10-01
Editor: Stylus Publishing, LLC

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

Research has identified the importance of helping students develop the ability to monitor their own comprehension and to make their thinking processes explicit, and indeed demonstrates that metacognitive teaching strategies greatly improve student engagement with course material. This book -- by presenting principles that teachers in higher education can put into practice in their own classrooms -- explains how to lay the ground for this engagement, and help students become self-regulated learners actively employing metacognitive and reflective strategies in their education. Key elements include embedding metacognitive instruction in the content matter; being explicit about the usefulness of metacognitive activities to provide the incentive for students to commit to the extra effort; as well as following through consistently. Recognizing that few teachers have a deep understanding of metacognition and how it functions, and still fewer have developed methods for integrating it into their curriculum, this book offers a hands-on, user-friendly guide for implementing metacognitive and reflective pedagogy in a range of disciplines. Offering seven practitioner examples from the sciences, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) fields, the social sciences and the humanities, along with sample syllabi, course materials, and student examples, this volume offers a range of strategies for incorporating these pedagogical approaches in college classrooms, as well as theoretical rationales for the strategies presented. By providing successful models from courses in a broad spectrum of disciplines, the editors and contributors reassure readers that they need not reinvent the wheel or fear the unknown, but can instead adapt tested interventions that aid learning and have been shown to improve both instructor and student satisfaction and engagement.

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

This bestselling book is a unique introduction to the practice of university teaching and its underlying theory.

The first part of the book provides an outline of the experience of teaching and learning from the student's point of view, out of which grows a set of prinicples for effective teaching in higher education. Part two shows how these ideas can enhance educational standards, looking in particular at four key areas facing every teacher in higher education: * Organising the content of undergraduate courses * Selecting teaching methods * Assessing student learning * Evaluating the effectivenesss of teaching. Case studies of exemplary teaching are used throughout to connect ideas to practice and to illustrate how to ensure better student learning. The final part of the book looks in more detail at appraisal, performance indicators, accountability and educational development and training. The book is essential reading for new and experienced lecturers, particularly those following formal programmes in university teaching, such as courses leading to ILT accreditation.

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

Pharmacy Education: What Matters in Learning and Teaching is an essential resource for any pharmacy faculty member. More than a narration of the philosophical aspects of teaching and personal perspectives on life as a faculty member, it explores ‘what matters”, “why it matters”, and “how to apply” the matter to teaching, learning, and assessment in pharmacy education. It covers a variety of teaching settings (e.g., large classroom, small group teaching, clinical site) and guides the reader in developing a deeper understanding of what it means to be a teacher. Scenarios are included in each chapter, offering readers the opportunity to readily apply educational theory to their role as educators and to adapt the book’s content to their specific educational setting. The reader, whether a part-time faculty member, full-time faculty member, or adjunct professor/preceptor, is given the opportunity to personalize the material addressed in the text to his/her stage of development through engagement in reflective workbook exercises. Pharmacy Education: What Matters in Learning and Teaching is a valuable tool for mid-level senior-level faculty members as well as for new faculty. This text can also serve as a resource for adjunct faculty members and pharmacy residency directors and preceptors to aid in the development and refinement of clinical educational programs in pharmacy. This book will be a valuable tool for not only individual pharmacy educators but for schools of pharmacy and pharmacy residency programs in their provision of faculty development and preceptor development programs.

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

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.

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

Written by the director and staff of the first, and one of the largest, teaching centers in American higher education – the University of Michigan’s Center for Research on Learning and Teaching (CRLT) – this book offers a unique perspective on the strategies for making a teaching center integral to an institution’s educational mission. It presents a comprehensive vision for running a wide range of related programs, and provides faculty developers elsewhere with ideas and material to prompt reflection on the management and practices of their centers – whatever their size – and on how best to create a culture of teaching on their campuses. Given that only about a fifth of all U.S. postsecondary institutions have a teaching center, this book also offers a wealth of ideas and models for those administrators who are considering the development of new centers on their campuses. Topics covered include: • The role of the director, budgetary strategies, and operational principles • Strategies for using evaluation to enhance and grow a teaching center • Relationships with center constituencies: faculty, provost, deans, and department chairs • Engagement with curricular reform and assessment • Strengthening diversity through faculty development • Engaging faculty in effective use of instructional technology • Using student feedback for instructional improvement • Using action research to improve teaching and learning • Incorporating role play and theatre in faculty development • Developing graduate students as consultants • Preparing future faculty for teaching • The challenges of faculty development at a research university In the concluding chapter, to provide additional context about the issues that teaching centers face today, twenty experienced center directors who operate in similar environments share their main challenges, and the strategies they have developed to overcome them through innovative programming and careful management of their resources. Their contributions fall into four broad categories: institutional-level challenges, engaging faculty and students and supporting engaged pedagogy, discipline-specific programming, and programming to address specific instructor career stages.
