The New College Classroom

The final installment in the “How We Know” Trilogy, The New College Classroom, co-authored with Dr. Christina Katopodis, is the “installation guide” that applies the big ideas of the earlier volumes. Combined with extensive research in active learning, radical pedagogy, and learning science, Davidson and Katopodis translate these ideas into ready-to-use strategies for instructors to incorporate into any course today.

“Bold, brilliant, and beautiful. Davidson and Katopodis challenge us to reimagine what happens in the classroom.”
