Moving Beyond the Classroom

Here you will find many suggestions, guidelines and best practices for instructors.

Principles for Good Practice
In 1987, the AAHE published Seven Principles for Good Practice in Undergraduate Education by Arthur W. Chickering and Zelda F. Gamson. These guidelines are based on 50 years of research and are still valid today.

Active Learning
Active learning is a practice that engages students, models real-life scenarios and encourages critical thinking. Active learning includes a wide variety of activities. The only thing not included is traditional lecture.

Connecting With Students
Good practice involves building strong connections between students and the instructor. Students should be encouraged to form a community of learners, sharing experiences, insights and opinions. Instructors should connect with students to help support, encourage and guide their learning experiences.
