Summary

McKeachie's Teaching Tipsis a handbook designed to provide helpful strategies for dealing with both the everyday problems of teaching at the university level, and those that pop up in trying to maximize learning for every student. The suggested strategies are supported by research and are grounded in enough theory to enable teachers to adapt them to their own situations. The author does not suggest a "set of recipes" to be followed mechanically, but gives teachers the tools they need to deal with the ever changing dynamics of teaching and learning. Improved Organization and consolidation of chapters allows the text to maintain its handy pocket-size length, while incorporating new information. New!Guest-Authored chapters offer advice and instruction from renowned educators, including Peter Elbow and Mary Deane Sorcinelli on writing, Jane Halonen on laboratory instruction (Chapter 20), and Marilla Svinicki on being a teacher (Chapter 27). Updated and Improved Technology Coverage, (Chapter 18) "Technology and Teaching" includes coverage of current issues such as: the use of PowerPoint slides, plagiarism, and effective Web research. Additional and relevant technology coverage will be interspersed in other chapters where appropriate. Expanded coverage of Experimental Learning (Chapter 21) and Updated Coverage of Hot Topics in higher education reflects recent policy shifts, current terminology, and changes in the field. Strengthened Coverage of Diversity in Chapter 13, written by Richard M. Suinn. Additional coverage of diversity is integrated throughout the text to include gender issues and learners with special needs to help instructors who need more background and experience with these issues. Increased Coverage of Standards and Accountability issues throughout the text.
