What does the title of the book ‘Small Teaching’ make you wonder about?
Small Teaching is “an approach that seeks to spark positive change in higher education through small but powerful modifications to our course design and teaching strategies”
The book Small Teaching describes little changes to learning environments that result in big shifts in learning. Author James Lang examines strategies derived from research on learning and higher education, that are applicable to the educational environments, and that he himself has observed or experienced. These activities take one of three forms:
- Brief 5-10 learning activity
- One time intervention
- Small modifications in the course design or communication
Each chapter introduces a concept from learning science with examples of how it can be applied in a variety of disciplines, and then guides instructors in creating their own small teaching strategies.
