The new issue of the Journal on Excellence in College Teaching is now available in print and online.
Volume 22, number 4 (2011) focuses on:
Why Do Students Do What They Do? (and How Do We Get Them to Do What We Think They Should?).
The issue¹s articles offer evidence-based practices for increasing student participation and engagement in classes.
The Journal is a peer-reviewed venue published at Miami University since 1990 by and for faculty at universities and two- and four-year colleges to increase student learning through effective teaching, interest in and enthusiasm for the profession of teaching, and communication among faculty about their classroom experiences. It answers Ernest Boyer’s (1990) call for a forum to present the scholarship of teaching and learning. The Journal provides a scholarly, written forum for discussion by faculty about all areas affecting teaching and learning, and gives faculty the opportunity to share proven, innovative pedagogies and thoughtful, inspirational insights about teaching.
