The recent literature on college teaching reflects widespread interest among faculty members, from nearly all disciplines, in finding more effective ways to teach their students. Many instructors, disenchanted with traditional college teaching methods and structure, are experimenting with different approaches to teaching. Most of these experiments contain at least one of the following provisions: (1) selection of options by students, (2) experience-based activities, (3) self-paced learning, (4) activities involving groups of students in the class, (5) direct involvement of the student in his own learning, (6)the use of instructional technology, and (7)independent study.
