A few teaching resources
Every year someone suggests adding teaching resource to the Academe section. That’s a great idea, except I don’t really keep track of what’s good online.
Every summer, I read a book on pedagogy. The one that I go back to the most for ideas and thinking through teaching is Ken Bain’s What The Best College Teachers Do. It’s based on research and has ideas that are applicable at every level of college and university teaching.
When I started teaching large lecture courses there was next to nothing online. A quick search of “teaching the large lecture course” yields a wide range of sources, though I can’t really speak to them in terms of quality. I would still love to see a listserv of people dedicated to discussing this very special type of teaching, as it’s a lot of the undergraduate teaching I do. (Over 3000 students served!)
Teaching Carnival is among my favorite academic blogs, though it’s not exactly a standard blog. Still, it’s more first person experience than it is systematic advice for teaching.
In 2013 I did a guest-post on ProfHacker that discusses multiple choice questions. One of the commenters linked to this very helpful paper by Mary Piontek: “Best Practices for Designing and Grading Exams”
Finally, some posts on teaching-related matters from my blog, Super Bon!:
