Inside Higher Ed’s 2017 survey of faculty attitudes on technology aims to understand how professors and campus digital learning leaders view online learning and other aspects of academic technology.

This webcast will address the following questions and more:

  • To what extent have faculty members taught online, face-to-face and hybrid courses?
  • Are faculty involved in the design of online courses they teach?
  • Do faculty and digital learning leaders believe online courses can achieve learning outcomes equivalent to those of in-person courses?
  • Has technology-enabled instruction fulfilled its promise of lowering per-student cost without diminishing quality?

Join Inside Higher Ed editors Scott Jaschik and Doug Lederman for a lively discussion on these topics Thursday, November 16 at 2:00 PM ET.

This webcast is made possible with the support of Jenzabar, VitalSource, Sonic Foundry, D2L and Pearson. By registering for the webcast, you are agreeing to share your registration information with Inside Higher Ed and the sponsors for marketing purposes.

Webinar: Flipping the Classroom and Other Techniques to Improve Teaching

Inside Higher Ed has a new webinar coming on December 7, 2017.

“Flipping the classroom” is an idea that has arrived in full force in higher education, and is part of broader movements as well. The basic idea is to move away from using class time for lecturing, and to instead provide that information in video form so students can review it ahead of time. This makes it possible to use class time engaged in truly active learning.

And of course there are many other ways to promote active learning in the classroom. These days even research universities not historically known to focus on teaching are pushing new efforts to promote active learning – and these efforts appear to be working.

This webcast will explore some of the many ways colleges are promoting flipped classrooms and other innovations in teaching.

Inside Higher Ed: Survey of Faculty Attitudes on Technology

Inside Higher Ed Logo

Inside Higher Ed released the 2013 edition of its annual Survey of Faculty Attitudes on Technology.  As usual the survey is tilted heavily toward online/blended course technology (online classes, blended classes, and lecture capture) since that is where the growth in technology is highest.

Overview of the findings:

  • MOOCs (massively open online courses) are a hot topic and controversial.
  • Administrators are 3.5 times more likely to have higher expectations for the potential outcomes of online courses than are faculty.
  • Faculty were fairly evenly divided over their assessment of the effectiveness of online courses’ delivery of content necessary to meet expected learning outcomes.
  • Thirty-nine percent of faculty had taught a hybrid or blended learning class.
  • Thirty percent of faculty say they have not taught online because no one had ever asked them to teach online.
