As the title of this book suggests, instructors face many choices - and their decisions and actions should be based on certain concepts. Yet many instructors don't know enough about those concepts and the educational research and theories behind them.
Concepts and Choices for Teaching offers the best of what is available in the realm of teaching and learning, both theoretical and practical, current and historical. As noted in the foreword, "It is our conviction that bringing these concepts and choices to your attention will help you take control of the process of becoming the best teacher possible. ... Whether you are new to teaching or quite experienced, we know that your teaching will be more effective and efficient once you become aware of the conceptual framework around which your personal teaching style is built."
Concepts and Choices for Teaching contains several real-life vignettes of teachers demonstrating each concept discussed. You'll find a diverse collection of ideas and strategies which have proven useful over time and in a wide variety of settings.
