Description

This book is about teaching for professional practice and explores ways to engage students in the classroom. It draws on the principles of rigorous scholarship and focuses on interactive learning between the class and the professor and among the students. Each contributor addresses the need to connect theory with community practice, deploying different methods in different contexts, and sharing scholarly reflections about how to improve the craft of teaching. The essays offer practical suggestions that allow readers to adapt and apply these ideas in their own classrooms to suit their particular contexts and share the outcomes of that process.

Editorial Review

Reading Teaching as Scholarship can benefit groups and individuals beyond the ones mentioned in the book. ... Those who are involved in community organizations that work directly with communities or those who liaise between communities and universities might also benefit from the innovative teaching/research practices in higher education institutions that were discussed in this collection.
