Barkley is a music history professor, but this book is not discipline-specific. Contains many ideas for active learning activities. Some are short, some take multiple classes, some are focused on writing, teamwork, or creativity, some require no prep, others a fair amount of instructor planning. Each activity has 3+ examples of how each activity might play out in different classes. See also Collaborative Learning Techniques: A Handbook for College Faculty. Google Books preview link given.
