Product description

From the Inside Flap

While cognitive research advances rapidly with every passing year, few resources demonstrate how to bridge the gap between cognitive theory and the real-world classroom environment. In the newly revised Second Edition of Small Teaching, distinguished professor James M. Lang delivers an up-to-date review of research-based teaching techniques that can be implemented by faculty in any discipline. The book connects powerful new research from cognitive theory with practical strategies for deploying these insights in a modern classroom.

Full of simple interventions that can be integrated into a pre-existing curriculum, author James M. Lang draws on his extensive experience teaching in-person and online to offer you in-classroom and online activities, one-time interventions, and small modifications that will have a major impact on your students.

You’ll learn how to help your students excel at retrieving knowledge from memory, use mindful practice to build cognitive skills, and make meaningful connections to course content. You’ll also discover how to build a community in your classroom, both online and in-person, and how to foster the motivation to learn in your students.

This new edition features revised and updated content, including a new preface, new techniques and examples, updated research, and new resources. Every chapter introduces a basic concept in cognitive and educa-tional research with major implications for classroom teaching, explains how to implement it at a particular point in time, and offers concrete examples of how the intervention could be useful in your discipline.

The latest edition of Small Teaching delivers practical guidance on implementing the latest cognitive and educational research in the form of small, manageable, and actionable changes to your physical and virtual classroom. Author and experienced professor James M. Lang shows you how to adopt small tweaks that bring your classroom into alignment with the latest evidence in cognitive research, regardless of the discipline you teach.

The new edition offers updated research, new examples and techniques, and brand-new resources to help you improve the ways in which your students recall information and connect with one another. By using brief classroom or online learning activities, one-time interventions in a course, or small modifications in course design or communication with students, you’ll spark positive change in your classroom and your students.
