Fleming College faculty (and anyone else who’d like to add!) are building a community patchwork of ‘chapters’ into a quasi-textbook about pedagogy for teaching & learning in college. This space is that work in progress. Each patch of the quilt/chapter of the book (let’s call it a patch book) will focus on one pedagogical skill and be completed and published by an individual faculty member. Wherever possible, we’d like to have the student perspective embedded in the work as well.
As mentioned, each chapter will cover one pedagogical skill. We began our search for pedagogical skills to cover with the University of Michigan’s High Leverage Practices, but the scope of the patchwork does not end there. It can be dictated by those who want to contribute their skill.
The faculty member who authors a chapter will offer their take on it. They will describe their learners and learning environment and how they deploy or use the skill in that space. It will include instruction on how to use the skill situated in a real example. Patch Zero of the patch book serves as a template of what the chapters could look like, but faculty members who sign up to co-author the book can take it from there.
Like the awesome 90’s street wear company FUBU (For US, By Us), this patchwork is for faculty, by faculty.
