It Works For Me, Too! More Shared Tips For Effective Teaching, Charlie Sweet, Hal Blythe Nov 2011

It Works For Me, Too! More Shared Tips For Effective Teaching, Charlie Sweet, Hal Blythe

Hal Blythe

In the four years since our first book on teaching, we have noticed both on our campus and around the country a new emphasis on the instructor as teacher (vs. scholar). We have read books on the subject, attended the prestigious Lilly Conference, helped establish a Teaching & Learning Center on our campus (Hal served as its first director), and written for new journals focusing on pedagogy. It Works For Me, Too! is our contribution to the Renaissance in College Pedagogy, our attempt to fuel this brightening interest in effective teaching. Like its predecessor, this book is a compilation of tips from workers in the collegiate trenches, but this time our contributors (some volunteers, some drafted) reflect the national interest in this subject and come from all around the country. We begin with a few theoretical approaches, but the major focus of IWFMT (not exactly a memorable acronym) is that average day in the classroom and what momentary magic some instructor has injected into the mix to make the experience much more than average. Sometimes the advice is general, but usually it’s specific. While the advisor may be in a different discipline than you, we have every confidence that you will be able to use this information in your area. After all, most of us weren’t born good teachers ®¢ we made ourselves that. During an observation last fall, Charlie watched as an instructor had her students reproduce exactly what Keats described on that famed Grecian urn. He went immediately into his Am Lit I class and had his students draw up the floor plan for the turret in which Lady Rowena is suddenly transformed into the lost love Ligeia. Only when his class could actually picture that pentagonal structure could they begin to see what magic might have transpired that fateful night. The best tips aren’t only shared; they are borrowed, reshaped, and adapted to one’s own philosophy, and, as John D. MacDonald once said about good writing making more good readers, that reworking makes us all much better teachers. So, read and adapt. Show Less

Evaluating The Work Of Teachers In Australian Schools : Vision And Reality, Elizabeth Kleinhenz, Lawrence Ingvarson, Rod Chadbourne Apr 2010

Evaluating The Work Of Teachers In Australian Schools : Vision And Reality, Elizabeth Kleinhenz, Lawrence Ingvarson, Rod Chadbourne

Dr Elizabeth Kleinhenz

Given the importance of effective teacher evaluation to successful teaching and learning, it is surprising that many of the research findings in this area are being ignored. Discredited procedures continue to survive and are even born again within reinvented systems of bureaucratic and managerial control This paper argues for an approach to teacher evaluation that reflects the findings of contemporary research. It falls into three parts. The first part reviews the relevant literature and distills some features and principles that underpin successful policy and practice. The second part describes a case study that was part of a research project, begun ...

Postgraduate Research Experience Questionnaire 2000, Adrian Beavis, John Ainley, Gerald Elsworth, B Guthrie

Dr John Ainley

This report describes the views of graduates from Australian universities on their experience of postgraduate research. It focuses specifically on graduates who completed their courses of study in 2000 but also references the previous cohort of postgraduate research students. The Post-Graduate Research Experience Questionnaire enables graduates to express their degree of agreement or disagreement on the following facets of their courses : quality of supervision; intellectual climate of the department in which the respondent was based; development of skills; quality of the infrastructure provided by the university; the thesis examination process; and the clarity of goals and expectations.


Association Between Intended And Attained Algebra Curriculum In Timss 1998/1999 For Ten Countries, Alla Routitsky, Susan Zammit Nov 2002

Association Between Intended And Attained Algebra Curriculum In Timss 1998/1999 For Ten Countries, Alla Routitsky, Susan Zammit

Dr Alla Routitsky

The Third International Mathematics and Science Study- Repeat 1998/1999 (TIMSS) assessed the mathematics and science achievement of students in their second year of high school. In addition to achievement tests, extensive information was collected from students and teachers. Of the 38 countries that took part, the overall results in mathematics of eleven countries, including Australia were not statistically different. Following the TIMSS research model, this article examines the association between three levels of curriculum, the intended curriculum, the implemented and the attained curriculum. In particular, this paper compares the achievement in four algebra topics for those students whose teachers ...

The Influence Of It : Perspectives From Five Australian Schools, John Ainley, D Banks, M Fleming Nov 2002

The Influence Of It : Perspectives From Five Australian Schools, John Ainley, D Banks, M Fleming

Dr John Ainley

Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) are now widespread in Australian schools but with variation in how, where, when and how much they are used. Computers may be located in a computer laboratory, distributed throughout the school, or students may use their own laptop computers. IT may be a subject in its own right or ICT may be used across all areas of the curriculum. It is how ICT is used in the school setting that is important in providing students with the skills to be participate in a 'knowledge society'. This paper examines the ways in which information and communication ...


An Analysis Of Instructional Components And Their Effects On Task Engagement And Self-Aggression Within A Classroom Setting, John J. Wheeler, Stacy L. Carter, Michael R. Mayton, Rebekah A. Thomas Nov 2002

An Analysis Of Instructional Components And Their Effects On Task Engagement And Self-Aggression Within A Classroom Setting, John J. Wheeler, Stacy L. Carter, Michael R. Mayton, Rebekah A. Thomas

John J. Wheeler

A brief structural analysis of instructional variables assessed levels of task engagement and self-aggression behavior in a seven-year- old child with multiple disabilities. Results indicated increased levels of task-engagement and reduced levels of self-aggression as stepwise changes in treatment components occurred, validating use of structural analysis of instructional variables in the classroom setting.


Internal Journeys Of College Presidents: Diary Reflections About Leadership And Values: Part Iii, Stephen Nelson Oct 2002

Internal Journeys Of College Presidents: Diary Reflections About Leadership And Values: Part Iii, Stephen Nelson

Stephen J. Nelson

One thing which presidents are supposed to do, to know and understand, and, most importantly, to be able to communicate to various publics and constituencies both within and beyond the gates is the true, lasting values, and importance of education. Shortly after the September 11th attacks, Roseann Runte, President of Old Dominion University, reflected on these important considerations for educators, now in the "new" context of the sensitivities and vulnerabilities, but also urgencies created by the unprecedented attacks by enemies on American soil.

Review Of The Book Reflections On Multiliterate Lives, Elizabeth C. Scheyder Oct 2002

Review Of The Book Reflections On Multiliterate Lives, Elizabeth C. Scheyder

Elizabeth C Scheyder

Many authors write books and papers about deficits in second language teaching and competence, shining a spotlight on what teachers are doing “wrong” or what students are lacking. In this volume, Diane Belcher and Ulla Connor set out to provide a model that bypasses these negative perspectives and showcases success stories in second (or nth) language learning. The result is a compilation of auto-ethnographies from 18 adults with successful professional careers who were asked to provide their “L1/L2 literacy autobiograph(ies)” (p. 209).

Internal Journeys Of College Presidents: Diary Reflections About Leadership And Values: Part Ii, Stephen Nelson Sep 2002

Internal Journeys Of College Presidents: Diary Reflections About Leadership And Values: Part Ii, Stephen Nelson

Stephen J. Nelson

Beyond these demands on their personal lives and those of their partners and families of presidents are the larger, and in many ways more difficult, relentless passages which must be navigated in the life of institutions and in the office of the president. These are the points of intersection, to name just a few of the forces, between and among leadership dynamics, the organizational culture of the college, its institutional saga, its diverse and often competing constituencies, and its stated and unstated mission and purpose. Here the very real politics and the necessary use of human capital takes place. Frank ...

Internal Journeys Of College Presidents: Diary Reflections About Leadership And Values, Stephen Nelson Aug 2002

Internal Journeys Of College Presidents: Diary Reflections About Leadership And Values, Stephen Nelson

Stephen J. Nelson

The ideas and thoughts of college and university presidents are most frequently and primarily known through their public roles and rhetoric. Over the past few years nearly three dozen college and university presidents have written diaries for public view as part of the Journal of College and Character. These presidential reflections provide a unique and rare opportunity to gain a behind-the-scenes view of the contemporary presidency, and of the leadership and values of presidents. This article is based on research of the words and impressions of these presidents in these public diaries. Using the perspectives revealed by the presidents, the ...
