Small Teaching

My new book, Small Teaching: Everyday Lessons from the Science of Learning, was published by Jossey-Bass on March 14, 2016.  The book argues that we can look at a small set of principles from the learning sciences in order to create incremental--but very powerful--changes in how we help students learn.

"Small Teaching is packed with ideas that will have you highlighting like mad. But this is no mere collection of tips – instead, it’s a powerful, coherent framework aligned to the realities of teaching in higher education today."

"Be ready to underline, add comments, attach sticky-notes, and share your copy.  In fact, buy two because your first copy will forever be on loan to colleagues ready for easy-to-adopt ideas that offer real results."

"James Lang's Small Teaching: Everyday Lessons from the Science of Learning manages to distill volumes of educational research into practical strategies that can be put to use immediately, without having to remake your whole course. I expect I'll be seeing well-thumbed copies on professors' bookshelves for years to come."
