Teaching Resources, Topics, Strategies, and Styles

Why reinvent the wheel?

Work smarter, not harder. Bogus buzzphrase? Unrealistic attempt to try to summarize a vast and deep sea of knowledge about teaching and learning? I don't know the answers but I did compile a non-exhaustive list of resources that may save you valuable time and allow you to focus your energy and creative juices toward improving your class as opposed to spending time surfing the internet for ideas, strategies, and styles related to teaching.

Each active link below is to a pdf file, which in turn has active links embedded in the file structure that directs you to another link related to some higher education topic, technique, idea, and so on.
