|Title:||Forever Better: Continuous Quality Improvement in Higher Education|
|Author:||Peter Knight, E. Nola Aitken, & Robert J. Rogerson|
|Description:||This book is a no-nonsense approach to teaching improvement that is geared to the needs of hard-pressed faculty in higher education. Although it is primarily intended for established faculty members who want to improve their teaching but whose time is limited, it also contains important ideas for chairs, heads of departments and for new faculty members, professional staff and teaching assistants. It draws on research evidence and practice in North America, Britain, New Zealand and Australia to present a host of well-tried, well-conceived "pick and Mix" ideas that can help anyone to be better at teaching. It covers major themes such as course planning, assessing student learning, lecturing, working with small groups and handling large classes. It covers the use of established and new technologies and methods to bring about improvements.|
1. Forever Better
"This is a clearly written work which is essential for a how-to manual. The authors’ approach to the major aspects of teaching competence is based on the latest thinking in faculty development. It makes a nice little book and it fills a niche that is not very crowded at the moment."
