Publisher's Summary

Decades of research have produced profound insights into how student learning and motivation can be unleashed - and it's not through technology or even the best of lectures. In Super Courses, education expert and best-selling author Ken Bain tells the fascinating story of enterprising college, graduate school, and high school teachers who are using evidence-based approaches to spark deeper levels of learning, critical thinking, and creativity - whether teaching online, in class, or in the field.

Visiting schools across the United States as well as in China and Singapore, Bain, working with his longtime collaborator, Marsha Marshall Bain, uncovers super courses throughout the humanities and sciences. At the University of Virginia, undergrads contemplate the big questions that drove Tolstoy - by working with juveniles at a maximum-security correctional facility. Harvard physics students learn about the universe not through lectures but from their peers in a class where even reading is a social event. And students at a Dallas high school use dance to develop growth mindsets - and many of them go on to top colleges, including Juilliard. Complete with sample syllabi, the book shows teachers how they can build their own super courses.

So much hope

As a traditionally below average student who, since my schooling has embraced learning deeper than ever, this book gives me hope that the education system doesn't have to continue being as I experienced. I want those, like myself, embraced by our system of education and Super Courses seem to be a window to that.

Great book for professors who care about teaching!

If you teach at the college or university level and care about reaching students and actually teaching them, you need to read/listen to this book. Great information and ideas to give a spark to your classes
