Review " ... A very practical work replete with carefully considered, useful, no-nonsense suggestions of ways to improve student learning in science and engineering classes ... Whether you are a beginning faculty member or one who has taught for some time, there is much to be gained from reading this book." (Journal of Chemical Education, October 2007)

From the Back Cover Based on the author's work in science and engineering educational research, this book offers broad, practical strategies for teaching science and engineering courses and describes how faculty can provide a learning environment that helps students comprehend the nature of science, understand science concepts, and solve problems in science courses.

This book's student-centered approach focuses on two main themes: reflective writing and collaborative groups. When faculty incorporate these methods into their courses, students gain a better understanding of science as a connected structure of concepts rather than as a tool kit of assorted practices.

Contents include:

  • Reflective Writing
  • Writing to Learn
  • Constructing Student Knowledge
  • Selected Methods for Using Collaborative Groups
  • Changing Students’ Epistemologies
  • Training Students to Solve Problems
  • Using the Computer to Aid Your Teaching
