From the Confucian Way to Collaborative Knowledge Co-Construction. New Directions for Teaching and Learning, Number 142
Sharing and engaging in interactions and discussion as required for collaborative teaching and learning can be a foreign concept to students coming from Asia or growing up in an Asian family. As such, this first volume in a two-volume edition helps lecturers, educators, and teachers create collaborative teaching and learning experiences with multicultural adult learners in higher education. Topics include: • assessment and evaluation techniques that focus on collaborative teaching and learning with diverse students, • students’ cultural beliefs and strategies for outcomes-based collaborative teaching and learning in Asia, and • an understanding of the unique learning motivations of contemporary Asian students. This is the 142nd volume of this Jossey-Bass higher education series. It offers a comprehensive range of ideas and techniques for improving college teaching based on the experience of seasoned instructors and the latest findings of educational and psychological researchers.
