James M. Lang’s thesis in Small Teaching is simple: There are small things that educators can do to improve learning outcomes in their classrooms. Lang asserts that these “small but powerful modifications to our course design and teaching practices” are easy for teachers to incorporate and supported by research on learning. Lang is well steeped in pedagogical best practices—he is the former director of the Center for Teaching Excellence at Assumption College in Worcester, MA, and he regularly writes for the Chronicle of Higher Education.
