What the Best College Teachers Do

By Ken Bain

I will start teaching my first college course in a couple of month, and besides preparing the lectures, observing lectures, and participating in a discussion group about teaching, I thought I should read this book to see what makes the best college teachers so good. It was very helpful in setting me in the right state of mind of teaching - getting me to think about things I can do to make learning more effective for the students and so on - but not very helpful in giving practical examples. But I guess that was the point of the book - the best college teachers think about these things themselves... [207 pp.]
