Review by CTLLibrary
Learner-cenetered Teaching - 2nd edition - has many new features including research that supports a move to this style of teaching. Many of the examples have been updated to represent the type of activities we now see in the classroom. As the title implies, this book helps faculty think about how their classroom practices focus on student learning rather than teacher output. While a move to this type of teaching can be scary, Weimer's book helps us think about the move in a systematic way, reducing some of the barriers many of us face.
