Joretta Nelson, Ph.D. reflects on "high-leverage practices" in education.
19 Impactful Teaching Practices
I have been closely following University of Michigan’s work in the development of the key pedagogical “skills” necessary for teachers (k-12). They created a list of 19 impactful practices for educators to utilize professionally. These so-called high-leverage practices are considered primary skills necessary to starting out strong as a beginning teacher.
In my own experience as a faculty member within higher education, I always wondered when and how I would be given the skills to teach within my discipline. The development of Centers for Teaching and Learning springing up on many campuses reflect a recognition of that need within higher education. I wonder if these k-12 practices might translate into the higher education classroom.
Here are the 19 practices:
12. Learning about students’ cultural, religious, family, intellectual, and personal experiences and resources for use in instruction
13. Setting long- and short-term learning goals for students
14. Designing single lessons and sequences of lessons
15.Checking student understanding during and at the conclusion of lessons
16. Selecting and designing formal assessments of student learning
17. Interpreting the results of student work, including routine assignments, quizzes, tests, projects, and standardized assessments
18. Providing oral and written feedback to students
19. Analyzing instruction for the purpose of improving it
What do you think? Do these high leverage teaching practices apply to higher education as well?
