Twenty  how-tos for teaching and learning    I have been teaching students of many ages for 
over twenty-five years.    I care about their future and dream of how they can make our society 
a better place to live in today’s turbulent world.   The need is more pressing than when I started
teaching. In reflecting upon my career, I realize that I was privileged to  have many people who 
supported and mentored me in my journey. They gave me many how-tos that I have in my tool 
box and their dedication to learners remains a shining model.  My desire to learn from others 
who share my passion continues. 

Much has transpired in the education environment in the past ten years. Changes in economics, 
technology, and student  demographics add new dimensions to the world of education. 
Surrounded by a culture of increased public scrutiny,  student success is a buzzword with increased 
attention being given to measuring outcomes, retention, and graduation  rates. Results of brain-based 
learning investigations, advanced research methodologies, and assessments of outcomes  reveal 
that classrooms need to be student-centered as compared to teacher-centered to maximize learning. 
Rather than  being solely lectured to, students need to actively engage with course content to maximize 
their learning. Additionally,  educators are expected to promote positive holistic outcomes in students’ 
cognitive, emotional, and social lives. Gone are  the days of evaluating teachers solely by their 
pedagogical methods as student learning has become the focus. As a result,  administrators and 
teachers alike realize that teaching skills are not something that is learned and repeated over the years. 
Instead, striving for continual improvement is critical to meet the developments of today.  

This SIB volume is a compilation of 20 helpful examples for educators who want to increase student 
learning in the classroom.  Educators from diverse disciplines share relevant theories and best practices 
to individuals who want to meet changing  demands and achieve increased excellence their field.  
Please join me in reading this book as we learn new how-tos and  are energized by the enthusiasm 
of others in our field.
