This essential resource covers three core areas:
1) Understanding Recent Research on Learning;
2) Identifying the Characteristics of Effective Teaching, and
3) Overcoming Barriers to the Implementation of Learner Centered Teaching.
Murphy and Alexander's book introduces readers to the research on learning and helps them develop an understanding of how different approaches to instruction are informed by research.
This will be the textbook for the first course in the Leadership for Learning curriculum, Facilitating Effective Learning for All Students. The Leadership for Learning curriculum is a joint venture between AASA and Canter/Sylvan Learning to create a new educational administration program that will be available on-line and at universities, including Vanderbilt.
