Praise:

Best Practices makes available the experiences and reflections of a few of the University’s many outstanding teachers. Readers who have taught will possibly recognize themselves and their students in some, if not all, of the essays. Others will recognize the qualities which have made certain of their teachers more memorable than others.” —UNC Wilmington Provost Paul Hosier
“Stimulating conversation about our profession is what Best Practices is all about. This collection encapsulates the rare passion UNCW commits to teaching and to student learning.” —UNC Wilmington Chancellor Rosemary DePaolo
