The Teaching Professor

OTEI has purchased a group site license allowing members of the Clemson University community free access to The Teaching Professor, a respected higher-education newsletter produced monthly by Magna Publications. As most of its articles are carefully edited excerpts from other publications (books, journal articles, other newsletter articles), it is a very time efficient way to keep up on research and trends in college-level teaching and learning. The articles range in nature from concrete teaching tips to research findings to theory.
