- "Practical, dear, and lively, On Course is full of experience-tested, research-based advice for graduate students and new faculty clutching the podium for the first time. Divided into fifteen chapters to match the weeks of the semester. On Course provides a wide range of innovative and traditional teaching strategies. They work - and they won't overwhelm you with extensive preparation or grading time when you're also trying to do your research, meet service requirements, learn your way around a new campus, and remember your children's names."--BOOK JACKET.
