Abstract:

Not all that long ago, one would have had great difficulty finding a book about how to design college courses. And, given the paradigm that seemingly dominated within higher education for much of the 20th century, it is no wonder. College-level teaching has historically lived within what has been called an instruction-focused paradigm Barr and Tagg, 1995. Within this paradigm, a college professors primary task in the classroom was to deliver instruction literally to profess his or her knowledge of a particular discipline to students, who were expected to absorb the to-be-learned material.
