What the Best College Teachers Do: New Book at the UNT Dallas Library!

What makes a college professor great and memorable? What the Best College Teachers Do explores this question. Taking information from a fifteen year study, the author suggests that the best teachers have a deep understanding of their subject and human learning. The best teachers are engaging. They foster new ideas in their students, provoke passionate responses, and create a challenging atmosphere conducive to critical thinking.

While the book explores college teachers teaching methods, it will be of use to both the veteran and novice educator at any level or anyone who is interested in instruction and sharing of new ideas.
