This page lists resources, some available online or in the Office of Teaching and Learning (Maxwell 200), for faculty and librarians interested in exploring new strategies for effective teaching and learning. If you know of any additional books, articles, or online resources you'd like to share with the BSU community, email Ann Brunjes.

The Clemson University Office of Teaching Effectiveness and Innovation list of web sites for instructional use. An amazing resource for all college instructors.
The University of Kansas Center for Teaching Excellence homepage, with great ideas and information on organizing your course, creating an effective syllabus, using class time effectively, etc.
This VARK site has a questionnaire to help you determine your learning preferences and strategize ways to learn most effectively. A better resource for learners than for teachers, but can help instructors think about how their own learning style might influence their teaching practice.
