Abstract: Teaching, Pedagogy, and Learning: Fertile Ground for Campus and Community Innovations brings together narratives of pedagogical innovation aimed at increasing student engagement and performance and bolstering faculty teaching effectiveness and satisfaction. These trans-disciplinary, trans-pedagogical essays all emerged from faculty experiences at the annual Institute for Pedagogy in the Liberal Arts (IPLA), offered by Oxford College of Emory University. The book spotlights two significant points: first, faculty need pioneering, supportive contexts within which they can conceive, develop, revise, and publish innovative teaching experiments using the same principles of experiential and active learning that have become the foundation of learning for student success; and, second, strong institutional partnership with faculty development affords one way to achieve this outcome. The seven essays in this book are written by seventeen diverse scholar-teachers across eleven academic disciplines and nine institutions—from K-12 schools to small liberal arts colleges to tier-one research institutions—for whom the IPLA experience at Oxford spring-boarded significant pedagogical growth.
