Using empirical research, Effective College and University Teaching: Strategies and Tactics for the New Professoriate gives faculty and graduate teaching assistants the tools for understanding why certain teaching practices work and how to adjust their teaching to changing classroom room and online environments. The majority of books on college and university teaching are "how to" books. This book takes a unique approach and provides both the rationale and a detailed guide for how to use and teach these practices to others. Written by leading scholars and expert master teachers, this book outlines, reviews, and discusses the best practices for preparing graduate students to become effective in their duties as teaching assistants and as teachers of record and for new faculty teaching earlier in their careers. The book provides full coverage of those topics central to developing efficacious training practices aimed at the professional development of teachers at the college and university level.

In The Press

“This is a very exciting project and I am looking forward to it being published. Apart from being helmed by two exemplary teachers (and great individuals), there is a strong line up of authors. Although there are many other books out there with information that overlaps, the thrust of this book as nicely specified in the proposal takes a voice and direction that none of the other mentioned books take (and I have seen them all). Together with the fact that this will be the most up to date book of the lot it takes the perspective of educating GTA supervisors and is not just a 'tips' book.”
