Webinar: Teaching Today’s Students

Inside Higher Ed is offering a new webinar on Teaching Today’s Students.  The webinar is free and will take place on Tuesday, August 29th at 2:00 PM.  Scott Jaschick and Doug Lederman will moderate the discussion.

Description:

The teaching landscape today looks very different from that of a generation or two ago. Technology is of course different – both the options available to professors and the ubiquity of devices brought to campus by students.

But there are many other issues as well, such as students who arrive with widely varying preparedness for college-level work. And there are ever increasing demands that colleges improve their retention and graduation rates. Combined, these shifts mean that engaging students has never been more important.

The booklet for the webinar is available here.
