Omtale The Little Orange Book II
The Little Orange Book II: Student Voices on Excellent Teaching is an anthology of essays on the topic of excellent teachers, teaching, and learning, written by students, university presidents, and faculty from across the University of Texas System's eight academic institutions. Unlike the essays in the Academy's first publication, The Little Orange Book: Short Lessons in Excellent Teaching-which can be downloaded for free on Apple iBooks-the essays in The Little Orange Book II focus less on strategies for effective teaching and more on students' perspectives on what elements combine to create the unique constellation of characteristics that excellent teachers possess. The result is a mosaic of voices that call attention to a range of relevant topics, from the role educators play in improving the mental health of students, to the unique university experiences of nontraditional students and student athletes, to the need for empathy when dealing with students.

This book offers extraordinary insight into the minds of students attending college in twenty-first-century Texas and is intended for all of those interested in university teaching and education more broadly.
