Contents Notes
Creating significant learning experiences -- A taxonomy of significant learning -- Designing significant learning experiences I: getting started -- Designing significant learning experiences II: shaping the learning experience -- Changing the way we teach -- Better organizational support for faculty -- The human significance of good teaching and learning -- Appendix A: Planning your course: a decision guide -- Appendix B: Suggested readings. "Creating Significant Learning Experiences also offers valuable recommendations on what various organizations in higher education can do to more effectively support better teaching. Based on the six key needs of faculty interested in changing the way they teach, Fink identifies several specific actions for decision makers in colleges and universities, accrediting agencies, funding agencies, journals on teaching, and disciplinary associations." "This book presents an exciting vision of what higher education might be, accompanied by practical advice on how to make that vision a reality."--Jacket.
