MEDIA REVIEWS
"For Scholars of religious studies and philosophy, Idea-Based Learning has much to commend it. It is not directed towards any specific discipline; instead, Hansen has included examples from across the curriculum. Hansen's book is readable and thought-provoking. It does not bog down the reader with excessive theory or debate, but rather seeks to be a concise guidebook for course design. It is an excellent starting point for new teachers, while also offering something to those more seasoned in the classroom. Finally, his work provides enough context that the reader is encouraged to move beyond this particular work in order to gain further depth into one's own reflection on teaching."--Forrest Clingerman, Ohio Northern University "Teaching Theology & Religion "
Much of course design consists of stringing together related topics in a linear fashion. This excellent book shows how to identify one or two central ideas and organize the course around them, so that topic selection, teaching practices, and assessments all converge to advance attainment of those ideas, and deep learning, improved critical thinking, and other valued skills emerge naturally as outcomes. Full of examples and practical suggestions, it provides invaluable step-by-step guidance that will benefit both novice and veteran teachers. --Mano Singham, author of God vs. Darwin: The War Between Evolution and Creationism in the Classroom and Director, University Center for Innovation in Teaching and Education"
In Idea-Based Learning Edmund Hansen shows faculty how college courses need to be designed! Hansen has the blueprint we all need to follow if we are to put together courses that will produce meaningful and long-lasting learning for our students."--Terry Doyle is the Chief Instructor for Faculty Development and Coordinator of the New Faculty Transition Program, Faculty Center for Teaching & Learning"
