A Resource for Teaching Excellence

A helpful resource the Essays on Teaching Excellence published  by POD, the Professional and Organizational Network in Higher Education. Though they are aimed at the undergraduate level, I have found them valuable, especially since the authors  back  up their advice with research. Here is the description:
