Language: English  

Publisher: New Delhi (India) : Random Exports, 2013

Summary:     The massive programme of community development was launched in many countries and the major works of transfer of technology were assigned to the staff by their respective Governments. It is important to form a scientific society for the promotion of study and research in education extension and allied subjects as well as for exchange of view and pooling up of experiences. Extension education is largely the process of teaching rural people how to live better by learning ways to improve their farm, home and community institutions. It is ‘helping people to help themselves’ by changing their behavior (knowledge, attitude and skills). Hence, an extension educator must simultaneously wear multiple hats – that of a teacher, guide, friend and philosopher. To be a successful extension educator, you must not only have a sound knowledge and understanding of the subject, but also an interest and ability to work for and with villagers. The profession, while challenging, can also be very satisfying. This book focuses on if one aspires to be an Extension Educator he must be processing an attitude and aptitude essentially demanded by all the profession (i.e. interest and ability to work for the villagers) in addition to having a sound knowledge and understanding of the subject. Thus this book will be very helpful to be a challenging profession with a satisfaction for the work done. – Back Cover

Evidence based teaching for higher education

Evidence-based teaching for higher education

by Beth M. Schwartz; Regan A. R. Gurung

callnumbericon LB 2331 E95 2012       ED-61633

Publisher: Washington, DC : American Psychological Association, 2012.

Summary:     Over the past two decades, a growing body of scholarship of teaching and learning (SoTL) has emerged. This empirical study of teaching methods, course design, and students' study practices has yielded invaluable information about how teachers teach and learners learn. Yet, university faculty members remain largely unaware of the findings of SoTL research. As a result, they tend to choose their teaching techniques and tools based on intuition and previous experience rather than on scientific evidence of effectiveness. This book synthesizes SoTL findings to help teachers choose techniques and tools that maximize student learning. Evidence-based recommendations are provided regarding teacher-student rapport, online teaching, use of technology in the classroom (such as audience response systems, podcasting, blogs, and wikis), experiential learning (such as internships, teaching assistantships, research assistantships, and in-class research projects), students' study habits, and more. In order to stimulate future SoTL research, the book also recommends numerous areas for future investigation. It concludes with advice for documenting teaching effectiveness for tenure review committees. Both novice and experienced university teachers will find this book useful, as well as professionals who work in faculty development centers.

General education essentials a guide for college faculty

General education essentials : a guide for college faculty

Summary:     "Full-time and part-time faculty in any discipline and at any size campus with any type of mission can pick up this volume and learn something that will help her or him improve teaching and learning. "--From the Foreword by Terrel L. Rhodes, vice president for Curriculum, Quality, and Assessment, Association of American Colleges and Universities. Every year, hundreds of small colleges, state schools, and large, research-oriented universities across the United States (and, increasingly, Europe and Asia) revisit their core and general education curricula, often moving toward more integrative models. And every year, faculty members who are highly skilled in narrowly defined fields ask two simple questions: "Why?" and "How is this going to affect me?" General Education Essentials seeks to answer these and other questions by providing a much-needed overview of and a rationale for the recent shift in general education curricular design, a sense of how this shift can affect a faculty member's teaching, and an understanding of how all of this might impact course and student assessment. Filled with examples from a variety of disciplines that will spark insights, General Education Essentials explores the techniques that can be used to ensure that students are gaining the skills they need to be perceptive scholars and productive citizens. "This is THE ONE BOOK for academics to get up to speed about reforming general education." --Jerry Gaff, senior scholar, Association of American Colleges and Universities

callnumbericon LB 3013 H366 2015     ED-61773

Edition: 2nd ed.

Language: English  

Publisher: New York : Routledge, 2015

Summary:     "The field of classroom management is not a neatly organized line of inquiry, but rather consists of many disparate topics and orientations that draw from multiple disciplines. Given the complex nature of the field, this comprehensive second edition of the handbook is an invaluable resource for those interested in understanding it. It provides the field with up-to-date summaries of research on the essential topics from the first edition, as well as fresh perspectives and chapters on new topics. It is the perfect tool for both graduate students and practitioners interested in a field both fascinating and not immediately accessible without the proper guidance"
