Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

In this second edition of the classic work Learner-Centered Teaching, Maryellen Weimer—one of the nation's most highly regarded authorities on effective college teaching—offers a comprehensive introduction to the topic of learner-centered teaching in the college and university classroom. This thoroughly revised and updated edition includes the most current examples of practice in action from a variety of disciplines and contains new information on the research support for learner-centered approaches. Weimer also includes a more in-depth discussion of how students' developmental issues influence the effectiveness of learner- centered teaching.

Learner-centered teaching focuses attention on what the student is learning, how the student is learning, the conditions under which the student is learning, whether the student is retaining and applying the learning, and how current learning positions the student for future learning. To help educators accomplish the goals of learner-centered teaching, this important book presents the meaning, practice, and ramifications of the learner-centered approach and how this approach transforms the college classroom environment. Learner-Centered Teaching shows how to tie teaching and curriculum to the process and objectives of learning rather than to the content delivery alone.

The book also offers well-researched advice for educators who want to transition to a learner-centered approach in their classrooms and identifies the steps to take to put into place learner-centered policies and practices. Learner-Centered Teaching provides a theoretical foundation for the learner-centered approach and outlines a positive way to improve teaching.

This second edition clearly shows how the learner-centered approach equips students with skills needed for a life of learning and how these approaches lead to learning that is transformative for both students and teachers.

Once again, Professor Weimer has struck a nerve in higher education, pointing out where we need to make changes to facilitate excellent education in our colleges. It is on the "must read" list for the faculty with whom I work in our Quality Enhancement Program to promote Critical Academic Literacy. The cites she gives of current and developing research are invaluable as support for the changes she recommends and my list of relevant items to read grows with every page in her book.

Although this book was written in an academic style, I liked the blend of theory and practice. The book is well-documented with relevant and current research.The teaching resources in Appendix One and Two were very helpful.
