A number of colleges and universities have excellent sites dedicated to helping professors and other educators learn more about effective teaching methods. In recent years, more than a few community colleges have also adopted such techniques, creating a plethora of websites geared towards assisting educators. The first site profiled is from the Lansing Community College’s Center For Teaching Excellence. From their page, visitors can take a look through a number of useful documents, such as “Classroom Strategies for Fostering Student Retention” and “Essays on Teaching Excellence.” The site also contains their biannual newsletter, “Spotlight on Faculty”, which features a number of teaching tips and techniques developed by faculty at the college. The second site will take users to the Teaching and Learning Center at Del Mar College in Corpus Christi, Texas. Here visitors can find helpful “technology tips” designed for incorporating technology into the classroom, and a number of podcasts of interest. These podcasts deal with a number of themes, ranging from mental health crises on campus to resource challenges facing community colleges.
