A concise and lively guide for college and university teachers, this collection of essays provides insights and solid advice for beginners as well as more experienced teachers. For the past eight years, the Harvard–Danforth Center for Teaching and Learning has been organizing programs that seek to improve university instruction. As part of these programs, the Center sponsors a faculty seminar on teaching lead by noted Harvard Professor C. Roland Christensen. The authors of this book—teachers in a wide variety of academic fields—were all participants in the seminar. In writing the book together, they drew on the Center’s resources and on their combined store of skills, techniques, and attitudes.

Topics include preparing for the first day of class, delivering good lectures, leading effective discussions, using the rhythms of the semester, teaching essay writing, grading and evaluation, and learning how to become a better teacher. The authors offer workable solutions for problems that every instructor faces and suggest strategies that will enrich the classroom experience for both teachers and students.

MEDIA REVIEWS

A wonderful book about the practicalities of teaching. - Boston Globe

Reading this book is a pleasure—it is like sitting in on a roundtable discussion with nine master teachers. - Change

The deep and genuine concern for student learning that should underlie all such efforts is particularly evident… It is a successful mix, as the title promises, of teaching as both definable technique and indefinable artistry. - Michele Fisher, Director, Stanford Center for Teaching and Learning

A must book. - Theodore Sizer
