Kennedy rated it really liked it I was given a copy of Advice for New Faculty Members as a touching gift by a colleague and the cohort of Science Outside the Lab upon my appointment at York.

Of course, I love the book for the inscriptions they each inserted It was, without a doubt, one of the key elements in my surviving my first year as a professor. That second lesson is easy to share but complicated to put into practice. The idea is to move from binge sessions of class preparation, writing, or committee work into small, regular, moderate chunks. But, the actual process of doing this is pretty difficult.

This is where the book struggles the most for two reasons. I never really got into the rhythm as a result: is this a book where I should read a chapter a week, or a book where I should read it all to get the overall message? Second, the example activities are weaker than much of the other writing, often feeling more like "draw the rest of the owl.

What I would give for a new edition that is more richly grounded in the field of the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning that has emerged over the past two decades. This is a pathbreaking work in the field What makes this book unique is its incredible emphasis on actual evidence.

Boice is curious about a basic question: what separates "quick start" faculty from those who are at risk of not getting tenure? He does an excellent job of collecting data to answer this question - rather than just speculating.

But, it does put the book at risk of being dated more quickly, as the field of studying pedagogy has made significant advances I would assume!
