In this new edition of the classic work, one of the nation′s most highly regarded authorities on effective college teaching offers a comprehensive introduction to the topic of learner–centered teaching in the college and university classroom, including the most up–to–date examples of practice in action from a variety of disciplines, an entirely new chapter on the research support for learner–centered approaches, and a more in–depth discussion of how students′ developmental issues impact the effectiveness of learner–centered teaching.
