This book shows teachers how to maintain their courage to teach, and shows how schools can support their teachers in providing their best to their students, by reaching out to students and encouraging them to learn.
What makes a great teacher great? This book, the conclusion of a fifteen-year study of nearly one hundred college teachers in a wide variety of fields and universities, offers valuable answers for all educators. The short answer is--it's not what teachers do, it's what they understand. The best teachers know their subjects inside and out--but they also know how to engage and challenge students and to provoke impassioned responses. Most of all, they believe two things fervently: that teaching matters and that students can learn.
How can I simultaneously support students' critical engagement with course content and develop their intercultural awareness? This book provides faculty and instructors with a theoretical foundation, practical tools, and an iterative and reflective process for designing and implementing an intercultural pedagogy. This book is intended both for individual reading as well as for collective study in learning communities.
"This book is a peer-reviewed, edited volume of essays written by current university professors that critically examines the phenomenon of best practices in teacher education, evaluation and education more broadly."
