In the very near future, smart technologies and big data will allow us to make large-scale and sophisticated interventions in politics, culture, and everyday life. . Technology will allow us to solve problems in highly original ways and create new incentives to get more people to do the right thing. . But how will such solutionism affect our society, once deeply political, moral, and irresolvable dilemmas are recast as uncontroversial and easily manageable matters of technological efficiency? . What if some such problems are simply vices in disguise? . What if some friction in communication is productive and some hypocrisy in politics necessary? . The temptation of the digital age is to fix everything - from crime to corruption to pollution to obesity - by digitally quantifying, tracking, or gamifying behavior. . But when we change the motivations for our moral, ethical, and civic behavior we may also change the very nature of that behavior. . Technology, . Evgeny . Morozov proposes, can be a force for improvement - but only if we keep solutionism in check and learn to appreciate the imperfections of liberal democracy. . Some of those imperfections are not accidental but by design. . Arguing that we badly need a new, post-. Internet way to debate the moral consequences of digital technologies, . To . Save .

Your graduate work was on bacterial evolution, but now youre lecturing to 200 freshmen on primate social life. . Youve taught . Kant for twenty years, but now youre team-teaching a new course on . Ethics and the . Internet. . The personality theorist retired and wasnt replaced, so now you, the neuroscientist, have to teach the . Sexual . Identity course. . Everyone in academia knows it and no one likes to admit it: faculty often have to teach courses in areas they dont know very well. . The challenges are even greater when students dont share your cultural background, lifestyle, or assumptions about how to behave in a classroom. . In this practical and funny book, an experienced teaching consultant offers many creative strategies for dealing with typical problems. . How can you prepare most efficiently for a new course in a new area? . How do you look credible? . And what do you do when you dont have a clue how to answer a question? .

Moving behind the reassuring public image of professorial expertise, . Huston exposes a growing but still largely hidden academic reality: university teachers – sometimes even full professors – teaching outside of their field. . Interviews with dozens of university faculty convincingly establish the prevalence of the practice and clarify the institutional reasons that it will likely increase in the years ahead. . But many readers will quickly move past the analysis of why university faculty must teach outside their specialty to consider the helpful advice on how to do such teaching well. . . It may surprise librarians how many teachers and administrators seek out this book – . Bryce . Christensen, . Booklist . Sometimes teachers might find themselves filling in, and . Teaching . What . You . Dont . Know is a handy book to help them deal with unexpected situations – . Bookseller and . Publisher . Have you ever been asked to deliver a lecture at short notice on a topic that is outside your comfort zone? . . If so, read this book. .

Education and . Teaching . International . When top-down support and open communication become the norm, teaching outside ones expertise can cease to be the nightmarish experience many feel it to be and become the illuminating and rewarding experience that . Huston describes. . While this is undoubtedly important, . Hustons consistently optimistic treatment of this subject and her clear suggestions for struggling teachers remain the books greatest strengths. . Teaching . What . You . Dont . Know is a pleasure to read and should be required reading in graduate pedagogy classes across disciplines – . Adam . Pacton, . Pedagogy . As [. Huston] demonstrates, teaching outside your area of competence is almost the norm in the . U. S. academy. . . The hints and tips provided here will be valuable perhaps everywhere that there is a higher education system. . . Teaching . What . You . Dont . Know will find a good audience as a rescue manual for the young, as it assuages the anxieties facing the postgraduate or the postdoctoral teacher. . The book, which clearly draws on a wide range of teaching experience on the . U. S. scene, offers good advice and outlines some useful strategies. . Huston does, moreover, dig up issues that have become ever more pressing over the past few years – . Leslie . Gofton, . Times . Higher . Education . This is one of the best books . Ive read on university teaching and learning in a long time. . It addresses an issue thats seldom discussed, in a book thats both carefully researched and wonderfully sparkling in style. .
