Back cover copy

The first Quick Hits were collected in 1991 at a colloquium of Indiana University faculty who had gathered to exchange tips about successful teaching. Each participant described a particular challenge and explained how he or she handled it. There are four main areas: General Teaching Tips, Student Motivation and Involvement, Philosophies of Teaching and Learning, and Discipline-Specific Ideas. Covered are such subjects as first days, teamwork, student boredom, classroom leadership, writing, science, history, music...and much more.show more
