Innovative Teaching Strategies


The Higher Learning Company recommends that faculty and academic administrators use research-based teaching and learning principles and strategies to:
1)  Design and implement course syllabi, learning outcomes, and teaching methodologies;
2)  Create an active learning environment for students;
3)  Improve the teaching and learning process;
4)  Avoid common teaching mistakes;
5)  Motivate students to learn;
6)  Systematically assess student learning;
7)  Enhance classroom management;
8)  Increase student retention; and
9)  Develop and implement a Certificate Program for Teaching Effectively in Higher Education.

These can be achieved by using the faculty development manuals and series of quick reference / best practice cards developed by Dr. Victoria Nesnick.
