Advice for Liberal Arts ProfessorseBook - 2008
"Teaching Nonmajors focuses on what dedicated teachers want to know - how can I teach better in the classroom? Unlike most books on teaching, this book delivers uncomplicated and immediately useful techniques and strategies for teaching required courses to nonmajors. Providing practical examples and brief anecdotes drawn from a variety of disciplines in the liberal arts and sciences, the author describes simple ways to break up lectures, how to stimulate the best discussions, the art of assignments, how to improve student ratings, and successful strategies for engaging nonmajors and for handling problem students. Teaching Nonmajors is written especially for liberal arts college and university professors at all career stages - from adjuncts and new professors, to seasoned professors looking for a fresh approach heading into a new term." --Book Jacket.
