I first read What the Best College Teachers Do ten years ago, and it remains one of my favourite book-length studies of university and college teaching because Bain presents useful principles and includes memorable anecdotes from some of the best college teachers in the US.
Ference Marton is my learning theory guru. His book with John Bowden, The University of Learning: Beyond Quality and Competence applies the principles of phenomenography to the context of higher education. A must-read for students of higher education.
Reading Diana Laurillard always makes my brain hurt, but in Teaching as a Design Science: Building Pedagogical Patterns for Learning and Technology she updates her conversational framework and offers strategies for blending conventional and online learning to make learning possible.
Anyone who teaches in a Business School in North America should read Rethinking Undergraduate Business Education: Liberal Learning for the Profession, the Carnegie Foundation's assessment of the way forward for undergraduate business schools.
John Bigg and Catherine Tang's Teaching for Quality Learning at University is a classic in the field and particularly popular outside of North America. It is very helpful because it addresses how to align curriculum at the course and program level and also offers a useful framework for selecting teaching and learning activities.
If you are involved in designing or redesigning program-level curriculum, then this book may offer inspiration. Strategic Curriculum Change in Universities: Global Trends by Paul Blackmore http://www.amazon.ca/dp/0415809347/ref=cm_sw_r_pi_dp_uh8vub1J7P2YR
