Enhance your teaching style with James E. Groccia’s systemic and insightful seven-variable model using a truly international perspective.

The need to understand learning and teaching from multiple cultural perspectives has become critically important in educating the next generation of college students. Using a unique global view, this comprehensive volume presents international perspectives on critical issues impacting teaching and learning in diverse higher education environments. Education experts from around the world share their perspectives on college and university teaching, identifying international differences and similarities. The chapters are organized around a model developed by James E. Groccia, which focuses on seven interrelated variables that must be explored to develop a full perspective of college and university teaching and learning. These interrelated variables include teacher, learner, learning process, learning context, course content, instructional processes, and learning outcomes. Using this logical model, the contributors provide readers with a guide for systemic thinking about how to improve teaching and learning, curriculum development, and assessment.
