Teaching and Learning in Higher Education features compact, practical books about how to teach at the college level. Series books are attentive to challenges and opportunities related to new technologies and incorporate the latest insights from the burgeoning field of cognitive science to impart perspectives on how students actually learn. Emphasizing the importance of “books written by human beings,” the series provides a welcome antidote to jargon-heavy prose more typical of books about higher education. All books in the series have a solid theoretical foundation in the learning sciences, offer practical strategies to working faculty, and provide guidance for further reading and study.

Series Editors:

James M. Lang is professor of English and the Director of the Center for Teaching Excellence at Assumption College. He writes a monthly column on teaching for the Chronicle of Higher Education and is the author of several books, including Small Teaching: Everyday Lessons from the Science of Learning (Wiley); Cheating Lessons: Learning from Academic Dishonesty (Harvard); On Course: A Week-by-Week Guide to Your First Semester of College Teaching (Harvard); and Life on the Tenure Track: Lessons from the First Year (Johns Hopkins).

Michelle D. Miller is professor of psychological sciences and President’s Distinguished Teaching Fellow at Northern Arizona University. She is the author of Minds Online: Teaching Effectively with Technology (Harvard), and has written about higher education pedagogy in scholarly as well as general-interest publications including College TeachingChange: The Magazine of Higher Learning, the Chronicle of Higher Education, and The Conversation.
