Lion Tamers Guide to Teaching

Lion Tamers Guide to Teaching is a collection of resources for teachers to improve teaching effectiveness as well as rapport with students. Series editor Kevin Patton says that “all I really need to know about teaching I learned as a lion tamer,” because his early experience as a wild animal trainer and apprentice lion tamer taught him not only the core principles of learning science—it taught him how to gain the trust of students and form the kind of empathetic and compassionate bond that promotes learning.

Pandemic Teaching book

Pandemic Teaching: A Survival Guide for College Faculty
by Kevin Patton

The world has changed, and so have the ways we teach and learn. It’s time to change with it. Pandemic Teaching is here to help you do just that. We know how hard it can be to move from a life of on-campus teaching to the new world of online teaching, but we also know how rewarding it can be when done right. That’s why we created this guidebook—to make sure you don’t get lost in the pandemic of remote teaching!

You won’t have any trouble finding what’s important or not in this era of pandemic teaching because our book will give you all the information you need. Written in an informal, conversational style, this book gives useful advice and empathetic support as you survive your own challenges.

The first section of the book provides a list of quick tips, strategies, and helpful mindsets—all based on Patton’s real-life practical experience. The second part of the book expands on some of those quick tips to give further advice for implementing them.
