ISETL’s Common Read for our 50th Anniversary!
Small teaching: Everyday lessons from the science of learning.
James M. Lange (2016)
San Francisco, CA: Jossey-Bass
Joining the ISETL common read allows you to collaborate with educators around the world regarding effective instructional practices that capture students’ attention and enhances engagement. Small Teaching is an intriguing text that bridges the gap between research and practice by providing simple “takeaways” to boost student learning in a higher education environment. A framework to accelerate students’ knowledge, understanding, and inspiration is delivered through brief classroom or online activities, one-time interventions, and small modifications in course design. By participating in ISETL’s common read, you can learn to easily implement “small teaching” aspects to make substantial improvements to the learning environment.
Don’t miss out on the chance to acquire more techniques to enrich students’ cognitive skills, deepen their understanding, and advance their own learning! Grab your copy today at any bookstore or Amazon!
