General Teaching Resources

How we teach follows directly from how we want our students to change through their experience in our academic programs and courses. Most university teaching integrates models that result in both "information transfer," so that students know more, and "critical thinking," so that students develop an attitude of inquiry and can do something with information once they have it. Strategies that target thinking skills are more difficult to develop and implement, and therefore these should be the instructor's priority in the planning and design process for most university courses.The links below will take you to sites that will help you find the tools you need to teach to these higher goals.
