Walvoord reports and analyzes the results of an extensive 2004-05 survey. Topics include learning goals and effective pedagogies. One of Walvoord's main findings is that for introductory religion courses, student learning goals differ from faculty goals. Faculty want to teach critical thinking about religion. Students (surprise, surprise) are interested in exploring their own beliefs and values. Walvoord's research suggests some creative ways to bridge this "Great Divide."

This is a great book for giving religious educators a good 360° look at what religious educators in different settings do to be effective. Well written also.

A very practical book about how to improve your teaching. Although it is focused on religion courses, it works for teaching any undergraduate (humanities) course.
