About this Page:

This page compiles links to resources on effective teaching strategies. I believe it is important to understand how students learn and adapt teaching methods to maximize student learning. Unfortunately, the traditional method of teaching political science through lectures and information-recall tests does not reflect best practices in higher education. These resouces can help us better understand student learning styles and improve our teaching abilities.
