about

An essential companion for university faculty interested in conducting scholarly inquiry into their classroom teaching, this practical guide presents a formal model for making visible the careful, difficult, and intentional scholarly work entailed in exploring a teaching question. As a how-to guide, this is an invaluable resource for planning and conducting classroom research—formulating questions and hypotheses, defining a data collection methodology, collecting data, measuring the impact, and documenting the results. Inquiry Into the College Classroom is filled with richly illustrative examples that highlight how university faculty from a range of academic disciplines have performed scholarly inquiries into their teaching and leads faculty on a journey that includes:
  • Developing a formal model for structuring the exploration of a classroom inquiry question
  • Providing a practical and useful guide for faculty interested in exploring teaching and learning challenges
  • Detailing faculty experiences in measuring specific changes in student learning or perspectives
  • Demonstrating how to document classroom inquiry in a form to be shared, used, and reviewed by other faculty
  • Sharing useful and practical suggestions for
    getting started with a classroom inquiry
  • Highlighting different models for disseminating classroom inquiry work
  • Linking classroom inquiry to larger conversations about the scholarship of teaching and learning
