Teaching Tips for College and University Instructors is a useful manual, a practical guide for the newest classroom teachers in higher education that provides down-to-earth advice for new assistant professors, teaching assistants, adjuncts, and doctoral students. This book provides a wealth of suggestions, techniques, and ideas for the novice instructor. It does not promote a particular teaching style or theoretical orientation, but draws upon recent research findings and years of experience in "the trenches" of higher education. There are helpful hints on such topics as writing the syllabus, how to handle complaints about "unfair" test questions and grades, how to prevent cheating, improving teaching performance, use of active learning techniques, and more effective lecturing. Using short "mini" essays and chapters, the whole spectrum of teaching at the post-secondary level is covered from the instructor's first day jitters to preparing a tenure portfolio. For new assistant professors, teaching assistants, adjuncts, doctoral students, and experienced college faculty. .
