The New College Classroom is Now Available
The New College Classroom helps instructors in all disciplines create an environment that is truly conducive to learning. Cathy N. Davidson and Christina Katopodis break down what the latest science of learning tells us about inspiring, effective, and inclusive teaching at the college level.
“In a book that is both inspirational and deeply practical, Davidson and Katopodis offer classroom instructors all the tools they need to transform traditional classrooms into learning environments that engage and empower twenty-first-century students. Grounded in cognitive science and classroom-tested examples from across the globe, The New College Classroom belongs in the hands of any educator―regardless of academic discipline―truly interested in changing students’ lives with effective teaching.”
―Beverly Daniel Tatum, interim president of Mount Holyoke College, president emerita of Spelman College, author of Why Are All the Black Kids Sitting Together in the Cafeteria? And Other Conversations about Race
