This book provides a wealth of suggestions, techniques, and ideas for the novice instructor. It does not promote a particular teaching style or theoretical orientation, but draws upon recent research findings and years of experience in the trenches of higher education. There are helpful hints on such topics as writing the syllabus, how to handle complaints about unfair test questions and grades, how to prevent cheating, improving teaching performance, use of active learning techniques, and more effective lecturing. Using short mini essays and chapters, the whole spectrum of teaching at the post-secondary level is covered from the instructors first day jitters to preparing a tenure portfolio. For new assistant professors, teaching assistants, adjuncts, doctoral students, and experienced college faculty.
