  1. VERY teacher-centric, but an interesting perspective on teaching as performance.

  2. In the book, I identify:

    the external developments that are putting pressure on university and college teaching,
    the day to day implications for instructors, teaching assistants, and students themselves
    some of the ways that instructors and institutions are successfully responding to such pressures,
    a set of strategies for redesigning your teaching that will help handle these pressures in a positive way.
    Although the book contains many practical examples, it is more than a cookbook on how to teach. It looks closely at

    the nature of knowledge, and how that results in different approaches to teaching
    the science behind how students learn best,
    the features that distinguish between different technologies from an educational perspective, and from this the implications of using different types of technology for teaching
    some alternative ways to design your courses so that they better meet the needs of your students
    some suggestions for managing your teaching work load.
  3. There are at least two important pedagogical motivations for open, peer teaching and learning.

    First, open learning creates an atmosphere of mutual learning, contribution, and collaboration that not only enhances our engagement in the quality and content of the learning experience but provides a life-skill for future interactions--in the workplace, in everyday life, in the community at large.   
    Second, open peer teaching and learning takes advantages of the affordances of digital tools available at a given moment, giving participants hands’ on experience in using these tools and also a practical and theoretical lesson in the possibilities, limitations, challenges, and even potential risks of open, public, online communication and interaction.  As such the method of open learning uses a digital toolkit and is constantly reflective, a meditation-in-action about the tools themselves and all the attendant issues the tools give rise to.
