Best Practices

Becoming an excellent teacher is a continuing, life-long challenge.  The identification and sharing of proven teaching techniques contributes to teaching improvement, and, in turn, to increased student learning.  Best Practices of the GCC English faculty reflect our shared responsibility to define,  document, and collect proven teaching techniques that contribute to increased student learning.  Use the menu links on the left to find our Best Practices.

We recognize that good practice in undergraduate education:

encourages contact between students and faculty,
develops reciprocity and cooperation among students,
encourages active learning,
gives prompt feedback,
emphasizes time on task,
communicates high expectations, and
respects diverse talents and ways of learning.
