LINKS Reviewed by LEP

DeLiberations is a "Website for Academics, Librarians and Eeucational Developers"

This online "magazine" emanates from London Guildhall and Kingston Universities. It features well-written articles on a wide range of topics, such as "Improving the quality of the learning environment" and "Using the internet as an aid to teaching and learning." Under "Other Educational Sites" it includes many excellent links. Those of particular interest to psychology faculty will be found under Science and Technology and Social Science-Based Educational Development Resources.

Teaching Psychology--an Online Handbook

"From the University Instructional Development Project of the Graduate School of the University of South Carolina--we bring you teaching advice from the experts! Whatever your experience level, you're sure to learn something here that will boost your teaching skills." Here are some two dozen essays, including excerpts from journal articles, on a variety of (non-IT) teaching topics such as lecturing, class discussion, cheating, exam creation, and the like. In spite of the title, most of the essays are not limited to the teaching of psychology. For instance the excellent piece on Classroom Management was writen by a math professor.

Preparing Future Faculty. " a national network of academic leaders reshaping graduate education to include preparation for the full range of faculty roles subsumed by the terms teaching, research, and service."
Mike's Master Index of WWW Sites (about the Internet, University Teaching, Technology and Education. Put together by Michael Albright, Instructional Technology Center, Iowa State University.
College and University Instructional Support Centers. Also by Michael Albright, this page includes both alphabetical and geographical listings (updated 12/97), as well as a "best-of-the-best" list (last updated in Feb. 97). Most of Mike's picks are media, instructional technology, or A/V centers as opposed to teaching and learning centers.
