General Education Essentials. A Guide for College Faculty

General Education Essentials«Full-time and part-time faculty in any discipline and at any size campus with any type of mission can pick up this volume and learn something that will help her or him improve teaching and learning.???»—From the Foreword by Terrel L. Rhodes, vice president for Curriculum, Quality, and Assessment, Association of American Colleges and Universities Every year, hundreds of small colleges, state schools, and large, research-oriented universities across the United States (and, increasingly, Europe and Asia) revisit their core and general education curricula, often moving toward more integrativemodels. And every year, faculty members who are highly skilled in narrowly defined fields ask two simple questions: «Why?» and «How is this going to affect me?» General Education Essentials seeks to answer these and other questions by providing a much-needed overview of and a rationale for therecent shift in general education curricular design, a sense of how this shift can affect a faculty member's teaching, and an understanding of how all of this might impact course and student assessment. Filled with examples from a variety of disciplines that will spark insights, General Education Essentials explores the techniques that can be used to ensure that students are gaining the skills they need to be perceptive scholars and productive citizens.«This is THE ONE BOOK for academics to get up to speed about reforming general education.» —Jerry Gaff, senior scholar, Association of American Colleges and Universities
