Higher Teaching is divided into two sections: "Practice," which addresses what to teach when you get your first course outline, how to choose strategies and plan lessons, and how to manage your classroom so it is a safe and positive place in which students learn. There are chapters on instructional media, teaching online assessment and evaluation, dealing with difficult students and academic integrity issues, and how to improve your teaching. The second part "Theory and Background," focuses on the theories that inform current higher education teaching and curriculum, adult education, and a very useful chapter of advice extracted from experienced teachers responding to the question, "What's the advice you would give to a brand new teacher?" Also useful to a new teacher are the glossary of academic jargon and a lesson plan template.

John Oughton lives in Toronto and has retired as Professor of Learning and Teaching at Centennial College in Toronto. He is the author of five poetry collections, most recently Counting Out the Millennium, the mystery novel Death by Triangulation, and over 400 articles, reviews and interviews. John's studies include an MA in English Literature, where his teachers included Irving Layton, Frank Davey, Eli Mandel and Miriam Waddington, and non-credit courses at the Jack Kerouac School of Disembodied Poetics, where he worked with Allen Ginsberg, Anne Waldman, William Burroughs and Robert Duncan. John is the a long-time member of the Long Dash Poetry Group. He is also a photographer and guitar player.
