College teachers have increased expectations to create engaging, inclusive, and effective learning environments. Active learning is a must, but with the multitudes of teaching strategies available, how does one choose the best methods to use?
Seven Ways of Learning provides a framework to help sort through the vast literature about college teaching and match your distinct learning goals with the most effective teaching strategies.
It goes beyond tips and tricks to tie teaching methods with well-established theories of learning and focus on intentional practice.
When teaching methods are purposefully chosen and implemented, they are ultimately more effective, and in the end, more enjoyable for both students and instructors.
