• Assess their ped­a­gogy
• Review their exist­ing con­tent

Inside Higher Ed Webinars

Down­load “Inno­va­tion in Teach­ing” Webi­nar

“Teach­ing is cru­cial to the mis­sion of every col­lege and uni­ver­sity – even if the degree pro­grams, stu­dents, fac­ulty mem­bers and insti­tu­tional mis­sions vary widely. Whether try­ing to teach first-year com­po­si­tion or advanced sci­ence, fac­ulty mem­bers are push­ing them­selves and their stu­dents. Below are some of the top­ics to be dis­cussed on the webi­nar:
  • Why some uni­ver­si­ties are giv­ing STEM edu­ca­tion more atten­tion.
  • How cer­tain traits of under­grad­u­ate edu­ca­tion are linked to suc­cess in life.”

Down­load the “Teach­ing with Tech­nol­ogy” Webi­nar

The use of tech­nol­ogy to deliver instruc­tion is an idea whose time has come – though the extent of its use varies greatly. At some insti­tu­tions, pro­fes­sors do lit­tle more than use learn­ing man­age­ment sys­tems to record atten­dance and grades and to com­mu­ni­cate with stu­dents. At the other end of the scale, mil­lions of stu­dents study entirely online. For the great mid­dle, though, pro­fes­sors are increas­ingly using their LMS and other tech­nol­ogy tools to do things that don’t sim­ply replace paper­work.

Down­load “The Flipped Class­room” Webi­nar

Inside Higher Ed edi­tors Scott Jaschik and Doug Led­er­man explore a range of ideas and opin­ions about the flipped class­room in this free webi­nar.
