An acclaimed educator presents hands-on advice on teaching that meets today's emphasis on learning outcomes and assessment. This book is informed by the most up-to-date research on how people learn. It is suitable for all instructors in higher education - as well as high school teachers. Laurie Richlin has been running a workshop on course design for higher education for over fifteen years, modifying and improving it progressively from the feedback of participants, and from what they in turn have taught her. Her goals are to enable participants to appropriately select teaching strategies, to design and create the conditions and experiences that will enable their students to learn; and in the process to develop the scholarly scaffold to document their ongoing course design and achievements. This book familiarizes readers with course design elements; enables them to understand themselves as individuals and teachers; know their students; adapt to the learning environment; design courses that promote deep learning; and assess the impact of the teaching practices and design choices they have made. She provides tools to create a full syllabus, offers guidance on such issues as framing questions that encourage discussion, developing assignments with rubrics, and creating tests. The book is packed with resources that will help readers structure their courses and constitute a rich reference of proven ideas. What Laurie Richlin offers is a intellectual framework, set of tools and best practices to enable readers to design and continually reassess their courses to better meet their teaching goals and the learning needs of their students.

Critically examine the intersections of learning and leadership. Using L. Dee Fink's taxonomy of signicant learning as a scaffold, experts in leadership education explain connections between emerging scholarship of teaching and learning and current trends in leadership, how to develop a more complex understanding of the levers of leadership learning, the environments that promote meaningful and measurable leadership learning, and the evidence behind such a practice. This volume examines: the role of leadership educator, the roles of authenticity (being true to one’s self) and criticality in education (interrogating beliefs and questioning power dynamics), select learning theories and their implications for leadership learning, and strategies for constructing leadership-related learning outcomes and assessing leadership learning. The Jossey-Bass quarterly report series New Directions for Student Leadership explores leadership concepts and pedagogical topics of interest to high school and college leadership educators. Issues are grounded in scholarship and feature practical applications and best practices in youth and adult leadership education.

Nach wie vor gibt es für die didaktische Gestaltung von Unterrichtssituationen wenig zufrieden stellende Hilfsmittel, die sowohl unerfahrene Pädagoginnen und Pädagogen unterstützen, gleichzeitig aber auch Kreativität und didaktische Vielfalt von Expertinnen und Experten fördern. Das vorliegende Buch präsentiert für dieses Dilemma einen neuen Lösungsansatz. Peter Baumgartner entwickelt eine didaktische Taxonomie, die acht Handlungsschichten mit sechs Beschreibungsebenen verknüpft. Ausgehend von einem Kategorialmodell, das nicht Lehrende, sondern Lernende in den Mittelpunkt stellt, werden didaktische Dimensionen und Prinzipien konstruiert, die für Unterrichtsmethoden eine handlungsanleitende Funktion übernehmen können. Am Beispiel der 20 Unterrichtsmodelle von Karl-Heinz Flechsig werden die Ergebnisse exemplarisch angewendet. Im Rahmen dieser diskursiven Exploration werden über 130 Unterrichtsmethoden identifiziert und damit der innovative und heuristische Charakter der didaktischen Taxonomie demonstriert. Ein Glossar sowie ein umfangreiches Sach- und Personenregister erleichtern den Zugriff und machen diesen Band zu einem vielseitig nutzbaren Werkzeug. http://www.peter.baumgartner.name/goodies/pdv Peter Baumgartner ist Professor für technologieunterstütztes Lernen an der Donau-Universität Krems und seit 30 Jahren in der Aus- und Weiterbildung von Lehrerinnen und Lehrern tätig. Er forscht und lehrt zu Themen des didaktischen Design von Blended-Learning-Szenarien, Lehr- und Lerntheorie, (Hochschul-)Didaktik und Evaluation interaktiver Lernsoftware und Lernumgebungen. http://www.peter.baumgartner.name/

When it was first published in 1997, The Course Syllabus became the gold standard reference for both new and experienced college faculty. Like the first edition, this book is based on a learner-centered approach. Because faculty members are now deeply committed to engaging students in learning, the syllabus has evolved into a useful, if lengthy, document. Today's syllabus provides details about course objectives, requirements and expectations, and also includes information about teaching philosophies, specific activities and the rationale for their use, and tools essential to student success.

Online Learning in Music: Foundations, Frameworks, and Practices offers fresh insights into the growth of online learning in music, perspectives on theoretical models for design and development of online courses, principles for good practice in online education, and an agenda for future research. Author Judith Bowman provides a complete overview of online education in music, including guidelines and accreditation standards for online instruction as well as a look at current research on online learning in music. She also explores several theoretical models for online course design, development, and implementation, before presenting a creative approach to online course design, both for fully online and also for blended courses. As a whole, the book challenges stereotypical views of professors as "sage on the stage" or "guide on the side," characterizing the online professor instead as Director of Learning. Necessary reading for all who work in online learning in music, it also suggests important ways both to prevent problems and also to resolve those that do arise.
