PUT THE LESSONS FROM TEACHING NAKED TO WORK IN YOUR CLASSROOM WITH A STEP-BY-STEP FIELD GUIDE
"Modeling creative educational practice on every page, Bowen and Watson have given higher education faculty and leaders a spectacularly useful guide to student learning in the age of digital innovation and learning research. The authors show readers, step-by-step, how to help novice college students become engaged, motivated, integrative, adaptive and even voracious learners."
Carol Geary Schneider, Fellow, Lumina Foundation and president emerita, Association of American Colleges and Universities (AAC&U)
"Teaching Naked Techniques masterfully integrates pedagogy and technology. Saving you days of research, what could be more helpful than the step-by-step application guide, examples, key concepts/summary, and annotated resources that each chapter provides?"
Linda B. Nilson, director emeritus, Office of Teaching Effectiveness and Innovation, Clemson University, and author, Teaching at Its Best, Fourth Edition
"In Teaching Naked Techniques you have as rich a resource as has been written in a generation for assisting higher education teachers in how to improve their course design and how to improve students' learning. Whether you are just beginning your teaching career or are a thirty-year veteran you owe it to your students to read this remarkable book."
Terry Doyle, author of Learner Centered Teaching, co-author of The New Science of Learning, and professor emeritus, Ferris State University
"Every teacher would profit from reading this book. I highly recommend it."
Henry L. Roediger, III, James S. McDonnell Distinguished University Professor, Washington University in St. Louis

James M. Lang, professor of English and director of the Center for Teaching Excellence, Assumption College, and author, Small Teaching: Everyday Lessons from the Science of Learning
