Lessons Learned, Volume 2: Practical Advice for the Teaching of Psychology
Edited by Baron Perlman, Lee McCann and Susan McFadden
Lessons Learned Volume 2: Practical Advice for the Teaching of Psychology is essential for anyone in psychology who teaches. It includes tips on integrating media, teaching scientific methodology, classroom fairness, storytelling, student motivation, teaching non-traditional students, managing your teaching load, the first day of class, teaching a course you feel unprepared to teach, and much more. The successor to 1999's Lessons Learned, this extraordinary publication presents selections from the popular Teaching Tips column of the Observer, the monthly news publication of the American Psychological Society.
Each chapter is a stimulating source of guidance and information on critical issues. It can be read cover-to-cover for a comprehensive teaching experience, or even used as an introductory textbook for teachers-in-training. Both the savvy veteran wishing to fine-tune skills and the new instructor looking to establish a solid pedagogical foundation will benefit from the wide range of topics offered in Lessons Learned. This practical, hands-on series is an invaluable resource for teachers-to-be, new teachers and seasoned educators alike.

The Academic Intrapreneur Strategy, Innovation, and Management in Higher Education
by Baron Perlman, Jim Gueths and Donald Weber
A pioneering contribution to the literature of intrapreneurship, this volume offers a unique new perspective on the subject by focusing on intrapreneurship in academe. The authors assert that the corporate lessons of survival, competition, and getting the job done--all widely documented in studies of intrapreneurship--are equally relevant, indeed vital, to institutions of higher education. They show how a university's productive capacity can be dramatically improved by incorporating the principles of intrapreneurship into an academic setting. They also offer practical strategies for intrapreneurial change drawn from their own experiences.
