Making Connections to Enhance Teaching

"The authors pull off an impressive double. They synthesize an
enormous amount of relevant research on learning and development
while also making clear the connections this research has for
practice. Written in a helpful and accessible style, and full of
case studies, applications, instruments, and vignettes of practice,
the book will be an invaluable resource for college teachers at any
level."--Stephen Brookfield, Distinguished Professor, University of
St. Thomas



"Effectively integrating the perspectives of a director of a
university learning assistance center and a scholar in the area of
developmental education, Silverman and Casazza have written an
important book. It should be read by anyone concerned with the
academic success of the increasingly diverse population of
undergraduates in colleges and universities."--Ernest Pascarella,
Petersen Professor of Higher Education, University of Iowa



Comprehensive yet easy to follow, Learning and Development is
designed to help faculty, student affairs professionals, and other
educators understand how students learn and what they can do to
foster student achievement. Sharon Silverman and Martha Casazza
reveal how diverse developmental needs--such as lack of self-esteem
or cultural alienation--can be at the root of a student's learning
difficulties. They draw from the latest theory and research to
explore the critical connection between learning and development in
six key areas: (1) self and identity; (2) motivation; (3)
interaction with the environment; (4) ways of knowing; (5) learning
styles and preferences; and (6) self-regulation and goal setting.
The authors also present six case studies to show how educators can
assess and resolve learning problems while enriching and advancing
their own teaching expertise. Written in clear, nontechnical
language, Learning and Development provides useful, systematic
approaches for making connections between teaching and learning.
