Section 7

The "Adventure EZine" Collection:
Look at teaching improvement as the exciting journey it truly is.

TFS Adventure Set Issues

The e-Zine issues in this subsection comprise the "Teaching as an Adventure" metaphor set. Perhaps the most beautiful, engaging and practical issues of all the TFS e-Zine issue produced so far.

These issues, Vol. 19, No.5 through Vol. 20, No. 3 feature the TFS Three Easy Pieces, Teaching improvement as an Adventure metaphor development series. Each issue is divided into innovative and aesthetically beautiful Adventure Prep, Expedition Outfitting, and Trek Improvement sections.


Section 1, Adventure Prep— faculty learn foundational concepts and new ideas relating to best practices, good teaching and learning. This section helps faculty understand more about "why" some concepts and strategies work better than others.


Section 2, Expedition Outfitting, presents in-depth, focused ideas on one or more of the Six Essentials elements of teaching improvement that are designed to help faculty solve specific teaching and learning problems in the context of their own teaching.


Section 3, Trek Improvement is interactive and dedicated toward offering faculty space to work on applying what they have learned in Sections 1 and 2 to their own teaching situation. "Trek Improvement" means just that—taking time to think through and record practical applications for immediate or future use in teaching improvement activities.
