Summary "This fully revised, updated and expanded fourth edition of A Handbook for Teachers in Universities and Colleges covers much new ground. Academics in teaching posts in universities and colleges have often had no teacher training, and frequently lack practical knowledge of how teaching should be approached and organized. Likewise, many require guidance on planning courses, preparing and using teaching materials, and assessing students' work." "This fourth edition covers all of these areas in a clear, down-to-earth and entertaining manner, offering copious practical advice and guidance. It also includes new material on teaching with the Internet and online resources, and on the moves in institutions towards greater accountability and quality assessment."--BOOK JACKET
