Teaching and Learning in Higher Education
Patricia Cranton

If you are a teacher, no matter how long you have been in the classroom, this is the book you will be glad to have. No One Way presents a clear, comprehensive, and integrative approach to improving the quality of teaching and learning in institutions of higher learning. No One Way derives its theoretical framework from research on domains of knowledge and psychological type. No One Way takes into account the larger context of higher education today with its more complex goals, larger and more varied student body, funding shortages, aging faculty, and lack of instructor training. No One Way offers practical, effective, and versatile strategies and ideas for classroom practice. Both beginning and experienced college and university teachers who care about their practice will find this book a boon. As well, it serves as an indispensable text for those involved in in-service training.
