As members of the faculty of the same college, the State University of New York at Potsdam, the fifteen contributors to this book have the unique experience of working from the same pool of students in order to explore how to improve teaching, enhance learning, and make the classroom more interesting. Together professors from thirteen different disciplines—art, biology, computer science, education, geology, history, math, modern languages, philosophy, physics, politics, psychology, and sociology—discuss their varied approaches to teaching. They offer ideas and philosophies that have been tried and have been successful and discover that nothing works for all students, but nearly everything works for at least a few.
