How to Make Your Own Classroom Textbooks, the first book in the new series of texts published by the University of Toronto Press, provides students with a step-by-step guide to creating their own textbooks.
The guide is designed to help students prepare for a career in the teaching profession, as well as prepare them for graduate school.
In addition to teaching materials, the series includes the first in-depth look at the academic and social challenges faced by students at the university, as the university is considering closing its Centre for Graduate Studies, which was built in the 1980s to support the university’s growing faculty.
“This book will help students who are just starting out in the field, and will help them find a career path that best suits their strengths and interests,” said Associate Professor of Teaching and Learning at the University, Susanne Luebke.
“I think the books will help us to better prepare students for graduate work, and hopefully it will help other students too.”
The books cover topics such as teacher preparation, academic standards, teaching styles and how to write for the classroom.
The books have already sold out and students are invited to pre-order a copy.
“These texts have been designed to be easy to understand, accessible to a wider audience, and easily digestible,” said Luehke.
“These texts will help our students to make good choices in the classroom, and I’m sure it will be of great help to the teaching professions as well.”
The University of London is currently considering a plan to close its Centre of Graduate Studies and reopen as a new department.
The centre is one of the most prestigious in the world for graduate students and has produced some of the brightest minds in the humanities.
