Teaching and Learning STEM: A Practical Guide

Richard Felder and Rebecca Brent

Our book, Teaching and Learning STEM: A Practical Guide (Jossey-Bass, 2016) presents a trove of practical research-based strategies for designing and teaching courses and assessing students’ learning. The book draws on our extensive backgrounds and decades of experience in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) education and faculty development. Its engaging and well-illustrated descriptions will equip you to implement the strategies in your courses and to deal effectively with problems (including student resistance) that might occur in the implementation. The strategies don’t require revolutionary time-intensive changes in your teaching, but rather a gradual integration of the old and new methods. The result will be continual improvement in your teaching and your students’ learning.
