Andrew K. Koch

Improving Teaching, Learning, Equity, and Success in Gateway Courses

New Directions for Higher Education, Number 180

€ 33.95

As long as there have been U.S. colleges and universities, there have been entry courses that pose difficulties for students – courses that have served more as “weeding-out” rather than “gearing-up” experiences for undergraduates.

This volume makes the case that the weed-out dynamic is no longer acceptable – if it ever was.
