Faculty Book Group: Small Teaching by James M. Lang

September 15, 2018

Small Teaching: Everyday Lessons from the Science of Learning by James M. LangIn Small Teaching, James M. Lang offers well-researched and eminently practical teaching activities designed to "spark positive change in higher education through small but powerful modifications to our course design and teaching practices" (5).  "These recommendations . . . . require minimal preparation and grading" (8).

In fact, as Lang points out in his Introduction, you can implement your chosen activity in class (or online) "tomorrow morning, next week on Friday, in the design of your next quiz or test, and even . . . in the next e-mail you send to your students" (6).

Big changes are fine if you have the luxury of time. But if you're interested in finding one thing today that could change your teaching tomorrow, then Small Teaching is for you.
