Amazing resource for facilitating learning experiences in and outside of the classroom. Bought my own copy because I see myself using this every time I design a course.

Tell students the point of this exercise and ensure them it's not graded and they're not expected to know a lot of this stuff, just trying to figure out where they are with it.

A great book, strongly suggests to be read by all Ishik and Salahaddin University teaching faculty.

This book contains a collection of techniques for teaching. The suggested techniques here are suitable for colleges/schools. Some of them can be adapted to university courses, but very few are applicable for natural sciences.
Had some good information, but nothing really ground breaking. Much of it was covered in at least one of our other texts.

“Student engagement is the product of motivation and active learning. It is a product rather than a sum because it will not occur if either element is missing.” 4 likes
“Although the terms teaching and learning are typically paired, those of us who teach know that students don't always learn. When I complained about this early in my teaching career, a colleagues chided me: "Saying 'I thaught the students something, they just didn't learn it' is akin to saying 'I sold them the car, they just didn't but it'".” 0 likes
