“Best practices” connect relevant educational research to in-course application to help instructors do the following:
- Inject rigour into the curriculum and its presentation
- Develop students’ thinking and problem-solving skills
- Motivate, engage, and prompt students to learn
While the entire “Resources” section of the site addresses “best practices” for university-level teaching, this section covers other important but more “miscellaneous” issues not found under the specific topics listed in the left column.
