Augustana Center for Teaching and Learning

Over the past summer, we have expanded our collection of teaching and learning resources in the Tredway Library.  We invite you to please take a look at these offerings here.   The bibliography includes resources on general teaching and learning topics, classroom and faculty assessment, teaching and learning strategies in the classroom, student development, and guidance for department chairs.  As part of that collection, we have started a binder of articles relevant to teaching and learning topics.  A listing of journals, on-line resources, list serves and newsletters are also included.

If you have suggestions for new materials or articles to include in the binder, please pass them on to Mike Green.
