Reaching Students: What Research Says About Effective Instruction in Undergraduate Science and Engineering (2015) 

by National Research Council, Division on Behavioral and Social Sciences and Education, Board on Science Education, and Nancy Kober

Reaching Students presents the best thinking to date on teaching and learning undergraduate science and engineering. Focusing on the disciplines of astronomy, biology, chemistry, engineering, geosciences, and physics, this book is an introduction to strategies to try in your classroom or institution. Concrete examples and case studies illustrate how experienced instructors and leaders have applied evidence-based approaches to address student needs, encouraged the use of effective techniques within a department or an institution, and addressed the challenges that arose along the way.
