Higher Ed Resource of the Week: College Teaching at Its Best

PalmerReleased on May 10 by Rowman & Littlefield, College Teaching at Its Best: Inspiring Students to Be Enthusiastic, Lifelong Learners by Chris Palmer provides a thorough introduction to all things related to college teaching. Although it is especially helpful to beginning teachers, experienced teachers may find new encouragement and wisdom in the book. This is a practical, how-to book, which is my favorite kind. The thirteen chapters cover a wide range of topics, including creating a syllabus, grading, caring for students, active learning, working with introverted students, variety in the classroom, and other relevant topics. Palmer is retired from his position as director of the Center for Environmental Filmmaking at American University. He is a noted wildlife film producer.  The 248-page book is available on Amazon for $28.29 and in Kindle format for $26.88.
