“Evolving Learning for the New Digital Era Webinar”
Wednesday, July 8, 2015 at 1:00pm-2:00pm CST
“Next gen” may be an apt phrase to describe the evolving learning environment in an increasingly digital era. Colleges and universities are no longer taking their first steps into the use of digital tools for either in-person or online instruction. Rather this is an era of refinement of strategies.
Colleges that have for up to a decade used digital teaching tools have been doing so long enough that they can track success and failure and adjust accordingly. Colleges that experimented with MOOCs are applying lessons learned to in-person instruction. With hybrid formats increasingly popular, colleges are mixing and matching the best of in-person and online instruction. And for all of higher ed, having the right learning strategies is closely related to enrollment and financial goals.
Join Inside Higher Ed editor Scott Jaschik and technology reporter Carl Straumsheim for a lively discussion on these issues in a free webinar.
