Summary

On Becoming an Innovative University Teacher shows readers how to plan, run and monitor innovative activities to engage their students in effective reflective learning. Each chapter begins by posing a question with which university and college teachers can be expected to identify, then answers the question by presenting a series of examples; thereafter the writer frankly airs his own second thoughts on what he has offered.
