Wenn es Ihnen wie den meisten Ihrer Kollegen geht, erhalten Sie als Dozent oder Doktorand keine Grundausbildung in Didaktik und Pädagogik für Ihre Hochschullehre. Es scheint als ob die Fähigkeit, Studierende zu unterrichten und sie in ihrem Lernen zu fördern, eine Selbstverständlichkeit wäre. Das ist natürlich falsch, und das Ziel dieses Buch ist es, diese Lücke zu füllen und Sie in Ihrer Lehre zu unterstützen. Forschungen über die Aufmerksamkeit, das Gedächtnis und die Motivation haben es ermöglicht, Lehrmethoden zu entwickeln, die das Verstehen und Lernen der Studierenden maximieren. Diese Lehrmethoden integrieren unter anderem das "aktive Lernen", das sich durch eine aktive Teilnahme der Studierenden am Lernprozess auszeichnet. Pragmatisch und praktisch werden in diesem Buch die didaktischen Methoden vorgestellt, die "funktionieren". Sie erfahren, wie Sie diese in großen Veranstaltungen (Vorlesungen) und kleinen Veranstaltungen (Seminare, Übungen) anwenden können. Dieses Buch enthält viele praktische und konkrete Hinweise für die Lehre, behandelt aber auch andere für Sie wichtige Themen wie Prüfungen, das "Schwätzen", die Motivation der Studierenden, und Zeitmanagement. Wenn Sie Lehrender an Universitäten oder Fachhochschulen sind, dann ist dieses Buch unentbehrlich für Sie. Aber auch jene, die in der Erwachsenenbildung tätig sind, werden die vielen pädagogischen Hinweise nützlich finden. Nach dem Lesen dieses Buches werden Sie nicht nur besser unterrichten, Sie werden auch mehr Spaß an Ihrem Beruf haben.

Taking a fresh look at questions that have long troubled teachers committed to social change, No Angel in the Classroom provides a richly conceptualized and down-to-earth account of feminist teaching in higher education. Long-time feminist educator, Berenice Malka Fisher, gives a nuanced interpretation of second wave feminist consciousness-raising that bridges the gap between feminist activism and the academy. Candid classroom stories bring out the myths embedded in many activist ideals of the 1970s, while Fisher's informed analysis builds on these tensions, offering a complex amount of experience, emotion, thought, and action in feminist teaching.

Top 10 Flashpoints in Student Ratings and the Evaluation of Teaching

ATTENTION: ALL FACULTY & ADMINISTRATORS “Another book on student ratings? Are you kidding me?” “Nope, but this one is REALLY different.” Another review of the research or step-by-step on how to develop and interpret rating scales? NOT! (Berk did that with Thirteen Strategies) Designed to solve YOUR problems, conflicts, and confusion about how to evaluate teaching. Written expressly for YOU with Berk’s signature sense of humor. FLASHPOINT: a critical stage in a process, trouble spot, contentious issue, volatile hot button, or lowest temperature at which a flammable liquid will give off enough vapor to ignite The “flashpoints” covered are the topics that pop up the most frequently and heatedly on listservs, blogs, and the literature. Each flashpoint is defined succinctly, options are presented, and then evidence-based recommendations for concrete action steps are proffered in an effort to stop the popping. The recommendations are grounded in psychometric, professional, and legal standards. The last-named, in particular, can protect you from costly litigation. If you hire, promote, demote, and fire full- and part-time faculty based on student ratings and other measures, then you are vulnerable to violations of federal anti-discrimination laws. Several flashpoints address procedures you can take to stay out of court. If you are a faculty member, you need to know whether your institution’s measures of teaching are appropriate and defensible, and what you should do if they are not. Four sample “flashpoints” and solutions: • Use of global items for summative decisions. SOLUTION: “Cease & desist” and use scale and subscale ratings • Low response rate in online administrations. SOLUTION: 20 strategies to increase rates • Scales to evaluate online and blended/hybrid courses. SOLUTION: 7 strategies are suggested and evaluated • Use of ratings for contract renewal, pay raise, teaching awards, and promotion and tenure. SOLUTION: Applying 80/20 rule for adverse impact to avoid lawsuits related to unequal pay, gender, race, ethnicity, and age discrimination
