Research on teaching in higher education shows that students who are well taught learn more than students who are poorly taught, and there are some teaching behaviors and strategies that are consistently associated with good teaching. This book identifies these strategies and presents them within a theoretical framework that explains how they promote students' active and meaningful learning. By presenting teaching as a logical structure of interconnected behaviors whose contribution to student learning is based on theory and research, the book promotes teachers' pedagogical knowledge and their perception of teaching as scholarly, intellectual work. The book provides extensive practical advice that is based on the vast experience of the author as an instructional consultant and on research on accomplished teachers, taken from the domains of education, psychology, and speech communication. The practical ideas are separated from the theoretical part in a way that makes them easily identifiable. The book also puts forth the voice of the students through authentic comments that they wrote in thousands of instructor-evaluation forms that the author collected over many years.

While white racism has global dimensions, it has an unshakeable lease on life in South African political organizations and its educational system. Donnarae MacCann and Yulisa Maddy here provide a thorough and provocative analysis of South African children's literature during the key decade around Nelson Mandela's release from prison. Their research demonstrates that the literature of this period was derived from the same milieu -- intellectual, educational, religious, political, and economic -- that brought white supremacy to South Africa during colonial times. This volume is a signal contribution to the study of children's literature and its relation to racism and social conditions.

Praise for Effective Teaching with Technology in Higher Education " This is not one of those technology-is-the-panacea-for-all-educational-ills books- that' s why I liked it. Much more sensibly, it takes the position that in certain contexts and for particular purposes technology can promote better teaching and more learning." - Maryellen Weimer, editor, The Teaching Professor " Distance education deans, coordinators, instructors, trainers, and instructional designer will all benefit from the information Bates and Poole share with their readers. They elaborate on the steps to teaching with technology- from vision to design to implementation to maintenance." - Judith Norton, director of training, California Virtual Campus, Professional Development Center " This book is a comprehensive resource for educators- by educators. It answers the questions that we all face as we strive to increase access and improve the quality of ourdistance education programs." - Bill Sollecito, director, Public Health Leadership Program, School of Public Health, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill " Finally! A faculty-centered tech book! Bates and Poole are faculty and write for faculty who want to lighten their work-load and heighten student learning. A must for today' s faculty, regardless of discipline." - Laura L. B. Border, director, Graduate Teacher Program, University of Colorado, Boulder

Part-time teachers have become an increasing part of the workforce in universities throughout the world. They work in a sector undergoing enormous change and debate about the purposes of the university for individuals, societies and economies. As part-time employees, however, they are not necessarily offered the same level of support or recognition as full-time lecturers. This book, drawing on the voices of part-time teachers and the expertise of those who support them, considers whole-institution strategies to promote individual and collective professional development. Utilising real action research undertaken by expert practitioners from Australia, New Zealand and the UK, this book explains: What motivates part-time teachers; Developing effective policy and practice to support part-time teachers; What part-time teachers' voices tell us about the content and delivery of induction programmes and ongoing support; The implications of change and future directions of Higher Education and part-time educators; How to build sustainable frameworks for the professional development of part-time staff. Developing Effective Part-time Teachers in Higher Education explores the extent to which part-time staff are utilised, the effectiveness of their teaching, their integration into the broader teaching environment, and their training and development. This international text will prove an invaluable source for anyone involved in academic and educational staff development in Higher or Further Education, and is essential reading for Human Resources directors and managers, senior academics and all part-time teachers.
