Foreword to the first edition: ´´This book is an exceptional introduction to some difficult ideas. It is full of downright good advice for every academic who wants to do something practical to improve his or hers students´ learning.´´ Paul Ramsden, Brisbane, Australia Endorsements for the fourth edition: ´´Biggs and Tang present a unified view of university teaching that is both grounded in research and theory and replete with guidance for novice and expert instructors. The book will inspire, challenge, unsettle, and in places annoy and even infuriate its readers, but it will succeed in helping them think about how high quality teaching can contribute to high quality learning.´´ John Kirby, Queens University, Ontario, Canada ´´For those teaching in schools and universities this book provides a framework that can be used to guide teaching from thinking about what a program, topic, lesson or lecture should be about, to the execution of the teaching and reflection on the outcomes. The guiding framework emerges from a sound conceptual analysis of the how the interaction between teacher and student can be organised to result in learning that enables students to approach the levels of understanding and problem solving that we hope will emerge from our teaching.´´ Mike Lawson, School of Education, Flinders University, Adelaide, Australia This best-selling book explains the concept of constructive alignment used in implementing outcomes-based education. Constructive alignment identifies the desired learning outcomes and helps teachers design the teaching and learning activities that will help students to achieve those outcomes, and to assess how well those outcomes have been achieved. Each chapter includes tasks that offer a ´how-to´ manual to implement constructive alignment in your own teaching practices. This new edition draws on the authors´ experience of consulting on the implementation of constructive alignment in Australia, Hong Kong, Ireland and Malaysia including a wider range of disciplines and teaching contexts. There is also a new section on the evaluation of constructive alignment, which is now used worldwide as a framework for good teaching and assessment, as it has been shown to: Assist university teachers who wish to improve the quality of their own teaching, their students´ learning and their assessment of learning outcomes Aid staff developers in providing support for departments in line with institutional policies Provide a framework for administrators interested in quality assurance and enhancement of teaching across the whole universityThe authors have also included useful web links to further material. Teaching for Quality Learning at University will be of particular interest to teachers, staff developers and administrators.
Wally Amos. Today, his name is a household word wherever his cookies precede him, and that´s in Japan, Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia, the United States, and Canada. A top-notch promoter at heart, Amos is constantly traveling, not only to promote his cookies, but also to speak on college campuses about the secrets of his success... and his favorite charity, Literacy Volunteers of America (LVA). He was a member of the President´s Private Sector Initiatives group, and he´s written an autobiography, The Famous Amos Story: The Face That Launched a Thousand Chips. He was born in Tallahassee, Florida, and reared, until he was 12, primarily by his mother, Ruby, a strict disciplinarian. Then, the break-up of his home sent him to New York City to live with his Aunt Della. She was the first person to make chocolate chip cookies for him, and it was that introduction which ultimately led to the creation of his famous cookies. As a teenager, he attended a New York City trade school, with an apprenticeship at a local hotel as a cook. Disenchanted, he quit six months prior to graduation and joined the Air Force. After a four-year stint, he returned to New York City, working first at Saks Fifth Avenue and later at The William Morris Agency. In both instances, he started as low man on the totem pole and by dint of hard work, climbed rapidly. In the 14 years he spent, first as a talent agent for the Morris Agency and later on his own as a personal manager of show business talent, he was always on the look-out for a superstar to represent. And then, he finally found one - the Famous Amos Chocolate Chip Cookie. Now, with stores located both domestically and internationally, the Famous Amos Chocolate Chip Cookie Corporation of Van Nuys, California, no longer counts its daily production in pounds of cookies, but in tons. 1.
