This is the long-awaited update on the bestselling book that offers a practical, accessible reference manual for faculty in any discipline. This new edition contains up-to-date information on technology as well as expanding on the ideas and strategies presented in the first edition. It includes more than sixty-one chapters designed to improve the teaching of beginning, mid-career, or senior faculty members. The topics cover both traditional tasks of teaching as well as broader concerns, such as diversity and inclusion in the classroom and technology in educational settings.
This thoroughly revised and updated edition of Barbara Gross Davis‘s classic book Tools for Teaching presents the very latest in ideas and strategies for college teaching: hundreds of tools, tips, and methods, all grounded in research and best practices of faculty. Topics from the bestselling first edition have been extensively updated, and new sections have been added to reflect recent developments in classroom and online technology.
“Teachers, from novices to veterans, will find Davis’s new work the indispensable toolbox for constructing, remodeling, or fixing almost anything related to teaching. Chock-full of practical description and complete with citations for finding further information, this is the book that every serious teacher will turn to again and again.”
―K. Patricia Cross, David Gardner Professor of Higher Education, emeritus, University of California, Berkeley, and coauthor, Classroom Assessment Techniques and Collaborative Learning Techniques
“Teaching is in part an art, but even great artists need good tools. The second edition of Tools for Teaching is even better than the first. It builds on the strengths of the earlier edition and covers many new topics that teachers in the age of PowerPoint, laptops, and Web 2.0 need to master. Every teacher deserves a resource like Tools for Teaching; institutions that care about teaching and learning should make sure each one of them gets a copy.”
―Peter Landsberger, former chancellor, Los Angeles Community Colleges
“Using the latest research on teaching and learning as a foundation, this book summarizes the wisdom of teaching effectiveness. I will have this book on my desk, not my shelf, when I teach.”
―Larry Braskamp, distinguished alumni professor, Central College, and coauthor, Putting Students First
