For many aspiring academics, the transition from doctoral student to classroom teacher is a challenging one. The classroom culture, the needed pedagogical skills, and the expected level and type of work are significantly different in the two environments. Nevertheless, most doctoral students go on to teach in undergraduate or seminary classrooms. To prepare the PhD students at McMaster Divinity College to negotiate this transition successfully, the faculty holds a biennial colloquium covering the major dimensions, both theoretical and practical, of a Christian teaching vocation. On the basis of the presentations of the colloquium, the essential topics have been addressed in essays prepared for this volume for the benefit of all who aspire to excellence in their teaching, especially those in Christian higher education.

In 2020, 15% of the world's population experienced some form of disability. The world and individuals often have cognitive biases toward this population of people. The chances of you interacting or being related to someone with a disability is 1 in 26. This book will challenge those biases, share the similarities and differences among those individuals and the rest of the population, promote inclusion and acceptance, and inspire the reader to be a better person to everyone, no matter the person's abilities. If you are a family member, educator, friend, neighbor, or coworker to someone with a special need, this book is for you! When you finish this book, or even a section, will have a better understanding of what it is like to walk in the shoes of a child or family with special needs, gain an appreciation for the times they were told "can't" by a person's actions and words, and be inspired by the obstacles each of these individuals and families have overcome. If you read this book with an open heart and mind, you too will be taught by those who were told they "can't." A portion of the proceeds from each book sold will be used to provide services to families who are currently going through special education in the public school system.

First released in the Spring of 1999, How People Learn has been expanded to show how the theories and insights from the original book can translate into actions and practice, now making a real connection between classroom activities and learning behavior. This edition includes far-reaching suggestions for research that could increase the impact that classroom teaching has on actual learning. Like the original edition, this book offers exciting new research about the mind and the brain that provides answers to a number of compelling questions. When do infants begin to learn? How do experts learn and how is this different from non-experts? What can teachers and schools do-with curricula, classroom settings, and teaching methods--to help children learn most effectively? New evidence from many branches of science has significantly added to our understanding of what it means to know, from the neural processes that occur during learning to the influence of culture on what people see and absorb. How People Learn examines these findings and their implications for what we teach, how we teach it, and how we assess what our children learn. The book uses exemplary teaching to illustrate how approaches based on what we now know result in in-depth learning. This new knowledge calls into question concepts and practices firmly entrenched in our current education system. Topics include: How learning actually changes the physical structure of the brain. How existing knowledge affects what people notice and how they learn. What the thought processes of experts tell us about how to teach. The amazing learning potential of infants. The relationship of classroom learning and everyday settings of community and workplace. Learning needs and opportunities for teachers. A realistic look at the role of technology in education.
