Handbook on Excellence in Learning and Pedagogy


Advice and good conversation on teaching and learning

This handbook contains information and samples that represent work by the King's College faculty over the span of a quarter century.  No faculty member could be expected to learn and do everything at once, but it is essential that everyone begin somewhere -- perhaps with one's favorite course or assignment.
