Linda Nilson B. Online Teaching at Its Best. Merging Instructional Design with Teaching and Learning Research

Bring pedagogy and cognitive science to online learning environments Online Teaching at Its Best: A Merger of Instructional Design with Teaching and Learning Research is the scholarly resource for online learning that faculty, instructional designers, and administrators have long been awaiting. Over 70 percent of degree-granting institutions offer online classes, and while technical resources abound, the courses often fall short of integrating the best practices in online pedagogy, even if they comply with online course design standards. Typically these standards omit the best practices in teaching and learning and the principles from cognitive science, leaving students struggling to keep the pace, understand the material, and fulfill their true potential as learners. This book fills the gap, providing evidence-based practices for online teaching, online course design, and online student motivation integrated with pedagogical and cognitive science to help you build the distance learning courses and programs your students deserve. As more and more students opt for distance learning, it's up to designers and instructors to rethink traditional methods and learn to work more effectively within the online learning environment, and up to administrators to provide the needed leadership. Online Teaching at Its Best provides practical, real-world advice grounded in educational science to help online instructors, instructional designers, and administrators deliver an exceptional learning experience. Adopt new pedagogical techniques designed specifically for online learning environments Ensure strong course alignment and effective student learning for online classes Increase student retention, build necessary support structures, and train faculty more effectively Integrate research-based course design and cognitive psychology into graduate or undergraduate programs Distance is no barrier to a great education; what do stand in the way are inadequate online course design and implementation and deficient faculty training and support—all of which administrators can mitigate. Online Teaching at Its Best will help you ensure that your online classes measure up to the rigor and quality of excellence in teaching and assessment, build in the personal touch for developing a learning community and equip your students to succeed in the next challenge.

What could be more important to college and university faculty than teaching well? Indeed, in the past several years researchers have not only investigated key variables influencing teaching and learning, they also have applied empirical findings to develop and refine new systems of teaching and learning—approaches that provide the infrastructure for the day-to-day organization and assessment of student learning over the course of an academic term. This volume presents an overview of these systems and offers an assessment of the effectiveness of each relative to both student learning and enjoyment of the learning process. Written by leading teaching scholars, these systems include the lecture, problem-based learning, case studies, team-based learning, interteaching, service-learning, just-in-time teaching, Web-based computer-aided personalized instruction, and online teaching. Each contributor outlines the basic principles of a system, describes how to implement the system, and reviews the system’s overall effectiveness. This is the 128th volume of the Jossey-Bass higher education quarterly report New Directions for Teaching and Learning, which offers a comprehensive range of ideas and techniques for improving college teaching based on the experience of seasoned instructors and the latest findings of educational and psychological researchers.

The contributors to this volume are academics working directly or indirectly with teaching and learning centers and professional communities, serving in the capacity of educational developer, researcher, or specialist; unit manager or director; or senior administrator. Drawing on survey and interview data, individual experience or perspective, and familiarity with the educational literature, they offer a context to understand and appreciate how the field of educational development, developer practice, and individual pathways have evolved, further highlighting what territory remains to be explored and uncovered.

The Interdependence of Teaching and Learning

The varied chapters of this book seek to capture the complexities of teaching and learning in today'sschools, and they share an interest in exploring the influences of knowledge construction in the moment andover time. Teaching and learning are human processes, interrelated and dynamic. We assembled thiscollection to unpack what it means to teach and to learn, teasing out some of the implications and challengesof such complicated educational processes that are often misconstrued as causal or linear. As educatorscurrently residing in the United States, we find this a particularly pressing agenda, given the current focuson common core standards and reducing teaching and learning to conceptual and pedagogical stepby-stepprocedures. Our primary concern in putting together this book was to provide a conceptual and politicalfoundation from which to construct and defend understandings and practices of teaching and learning thatembody the complexity of educational endeavors and relationships. The isolation of teaching from learning,and the othering of both teachers and students, one from the other, suggests that knowledge is synonymouswith information. This book challenges such assumptions.The project underlying this text can be seen as a means of rethinking how teachers' and students' perspectives of practice and curriculum influencewhat learning opportunities are provided to students. Chapters written by established and new thinkers in the field of education demonstrate...

The Course Reflection Project. Faculty Reflections on Teaching Service-Learning

Service-learning is entering a post-initiatory phase. At tertiary institutions of all types and sizes,service-learning programs are common and service-learning requirements for graduation aregrowing in popularity. Taken together -- alongside continued faculty interest in effective teaching-- these factors have raised the visibility and popularity of service-learning. Now the greater needin service-learning is not to prove the need for, or efficacy of, service-learning, but to turn thefocus squarely back on practice. Following established best practice is not enough; instructorsalso need to reflect on how this fits within the specific context and application of each uniquecourse and service-learning partnership. While there are many excellent resources that detail bestpractice and showcase exemplary service-learning courses, faculty reflection and course revisionoften goes unmentioned. In response to the lack of attention on the role of reflection and courserevision, we convened groups of faculty from a variety of disciplines to reflect deeply on their courses, paying specific attention toobstacles and challenges. These conversations were converted to articles for this edited collection, each chapter representing theprocess of reflection and revision and serving as a guide to develop effective practice in varied curricular contexts.This text contributes to the body of literature on service-learning in a unique and practical manner.

L. Fink Dee Creating Significant Learning Experiences. An Integrated Approach to Designing College Courses

"Dee Fink challenges our conventional assumptions and practices and offers an insightful approach to expanding our learning goals, making higher education more meaningful. This is a gem of a book that every college teacher should read." —Ken Bain, author, What the Best College Students Do Since the original publication of L. Dee Fink's Creating Significant Learning Experiences, higher education has continued to move in two opposite directions: more institutions encourage faculty to focus on research, obtaining grants, and publishing, while accreditation agencies, policy-makers, and students themselves emphasize the need for greater attention to the quality of teaching and learning. Now the author has updated his bestselling classic, providing busy faculty with invaluable conceptual and procedural tools for instructional design. Step by step, Fink shows how to use a taxonomy of significant learning and systematically combine the best research-based practices for learning-centered teaching with a teaching strategy in a way that results in powerful learning experiences. This edition addresses new research on how people learn, active learning, and student engagement; includes illustrative examples from online teaching; and reports on the effectiveness of Fink's time-tested model. Fink also explores recent changes in higher education nationally and internationally and offers more proven strategies for dealing with student resistance to innovative teaching. Tapping into the knowledge, tools, and strategies in Creating Significant Learning Experiences empowers educators to creatively design courses that will result in significant learning for their students. «As thought-provoking and inspiring today as it was when it was first published, it is a 'must' for anyone serious about creating courses that challenge students to learn deeply.» —Elizabeth F.

In this volume, the authors contend that teaching and learning must be viewed as communal work, whether conducted in one classroom, with colleagues at a programmatic level, or when tackled on a university-wide scale. When educators partner with faculty colleagues or students in teaching and learning, it becomes possible to improve the educational experiences of all students, model professional behaviors that students will soon be expected to embrace, and positively impact graduates, peers, campuses, and even communities at large. By intentionally creating collaborative structures for communal work to occur, educators can broaden access to opportunities for students, improve engagement experiences within the community, and improve faculty support and scholarship. Exploring multiple perspectives on collaborative structures in teaching and learning, this volume discusses ways to consider the collaborative structures within education that allow for shared contributions to teaching and learning. It discusses the need for practitioners to view teaching and learning as truly communal work, regardless of the type of setting. This is the 148th volume of this Jossey-Bass higher education series. It offers a comprehensive range of ideas and techniques for improving college teaching based on the experience of seasoned instructors and the latest findings of educational and psychological researchers.
