Essential Teaching Skills
Essential Teaching Skills: Strategies for the Highly Effective Instructorfocuses on the everyday challenges faced by instructors who want to facilitate learning and growth on the part of their learners. The book provides basic information of practical value to instructors at the postsecondary level (community college instructors, teaching assistants, seminar leaders and trainers, new PhDs, and other instructors). The initial chapter defines and describes the role of the instructor in the postsecondary setting. Chapters that follow cover course and lesson planning, learning theory and processes, factors that influence learning, instructional strategies, instructional technology, learner evaluation, and e-learning. Reference lists are provided at the end of each chapter for instructors who have a special interest in the “why” and “how” of the teaching-learning process.
