Reviews

College Teaching: Developing Perspective Through Dialogue casts a wide net over the topic of teaching in college. It begins with the notion that to understand what it means to be a good college teacher, self-awareness is essential. From there it provides helpful guidelines for beginning teachers, as well as to more experienced ones, about the instructional process and the academic activities outside the classroom that are imperative for survival as a college teacher.

College Teaching uses a question-answer format to explore its nine parts:
Gaining Some Insight on Self
Preparing to Teach the Course
The First Class Session
Issues in the Classroom
Teaching Methods and Techniques
Teaching With Technology
Evaluating and Grading
Academic Advising
Academic Activities Outside the Classroom

Readers of the book will find its conversational and personal tone to be a welcoming approach to exploring the complexities, dynamics, and joys of college teaching.

"…this book is a must-read for the new academic because it contains practical information and provides a comprehensive model for the classroom experience…The book's user friendly format allows the reader to review one section at a time and includes a question and answer section…clear in its application of concepts to practice and would be ideal for professional development seminars designed for junior faculty and teaching assistants in all disiplines." -- Vicki A. Williams, Adult Learning, Volume 18, Number 1 & 2, Winter/Spring 2007

"This book is a good resource for new college teachers as well as seasoned veterans who want to assess and reflect on their pedagogical methods. It is systematic, understandable, and practical. Galbraith does an excellent job of providing an in-depth analysis of the role of the college teacher inside and outside of the classroom." -- Arch Chee Keen Wong, Teaching Theology and Religion
