Our Web Is Back!

After over a week of our website missing, we are back. However, we need to make many changes to it in order to make it truly workable. We appreciate your patience.

Meanwhile, let's celebrate the return of the website. Let's celebrate with three of our most exciting and popular titles. Plus, let's do free shipping on them through November 30, 2015. 

Successful Beginnings for College Teaching Teaching Today's College Students Envisioning Equity

New Case Studies Series Available

We are launching a new project now: Our individual case studies for focusing on classroom communication with an emphasis on diversity and sustainability. Visit their page to learn more.

Open Access

Our classic title, Distance Leaners in Higher Education, is now available as Open Access. It is the book that informed much of current practice in distance teaching and learning.

And, how has a title stayed so current for so long? Perhaps, it is because it focuses not on the phenominal technology that proliferates so rapidly, but on the human dimension of the teaching/learning process.

Educators continue to weigh the technology in relation to good teaching practices. This book paved the way for that continuing conversation.

For more on the book and to access it, go to our Distance Learners in Higher Education page.

Click on the icon to subscribe or to view our third Essay, entitled "Department Chair Call for Leadership -- Part 2" which is an excerpt from our new Department Chair Leadership Skills.

Our premier essay was "Hard Times, Tough Decisions," by Harry Peterson, author of Leading a Small College or University and may be viewed as well.

Doing More with Less...

We know that many institutions are struggling to do just that  do more with less resources. We want to help in the ways we can. From time to time, we will announce special offers, so check back frequently.

We would like to highlight two special offers: The New Instructor Package and Veteran Instructor Package. Both packages offer several books for $50.00  about a 33% savings.
