Product Description

In Taking Learning to Task, Vella shifts the spotlight from teaching tasks to learning tasks. Unlike traditional teaching methods, learning tasks are open questions leading to open dialogue between teacher and learner. To illustrate this unique approach, Vella provides seven steps to planning learning-centered courses, four types of learning tasks, a checklist of principles and practices, critical questions for instructional design, key components for evaluation, and other tools. She also shares real-world examples of successful learning programs, including online and distance-learning courses. Taking Learning to Task is a hands-on, practical guide to designing effective learning tasks for diverse learners and diverse content. Teachers, trainers, and all types of instructors will find a wealth of advice for refining their day-to-day practice

Editorial Reviews

"Reading this wonderful book is like having Jane Vella at yourside. She encourages, she coaches, she inquires, she models--andultimately she gives us the courage to risk changing ourestablished habits of teaching. An important book, to be read andreread." --Clifford Baden, director of programs in professionaleducation, Harvard University
"As an octogenarian who has taught for many years, I celebrate whatVella has done in these pages. By marrying theory and practice, shehas shown how to design learning that takes hold of thelearner--mind, heart, and muscles. I'm going to use learning tasksin my own work and prove that it is never too late to learn."--Jack McCall, professor, Principals' Executive Program, Universityof North Carolina, Chapel Hill
"Is Jane Vella's brilliant and challenging approach something wecan truly master? In Taking Learning to Task, the master herselfreveals the mechanics of creating learning tasks. You'll feel asthough you've found the keys to creating profound and powerfullyeffective learning experiences. Anyone responsible for engaging agroup of adults in learning will find this book invaluable!" --RodBrooks, vice president for administration, EXPLORIS
"Vella has inspired me to rethink my teaching and move in a newdirection. Instead of merely giving a lecture, I now weavetheoretical information into creative learning tasks. It's adynamic new teaching-learning approach, and your students willthank you for it." --Monica Rector, professor, University of NorthCarolina at Chapel Hill
"Highly recommended for upper-division undergraduates and above."(Choice, 9/01)
