This book is about how to teach well. While it draws on our personal experiences in education and will include anecdotes, it is grounded in research on classrooms and students in a wide variety of contexts. It may come as little surprise that teachers often tend to teach in the ways that they were taught (Lortie, 2002); that can be wonderful for learners who are similar to you, but terrible for students who did not have the same background, experiences, and interests.

This text includes chapters from instructional designers, university faculty and staff, and undergraduate and graduate students, and the text has been divided into three sections to reflect these varied perspectives. Each section begins with research-based perspectives, but also contains more personal narratives at the end. While the context of most of the chapters is the United States, there are also chapters with a Canadian context. It is also important to note that, as of the first half of 2021, the pandemic rages on, and mentions of COVID-19 in the following chapters will be reflective of the state of affairs in North America in the spring and fall of 2020.
