Description


Successful faculty are not created or nurtured in a vacuum.   It takes an institution-wide commitment to developing those 21st century skills in ways that enhance student learning.  What does your institution do to put the scaffolding in place that allows faculty to experiment with new technologies in their teaching in ways that will impact student success?   How can institutions encourage and support their faculty to use technology to engage students who are coming to campus ever-more connected, expecting instant feedback and increasingly accustomed to using multiple devices in their academic pursuits? This interactive panel will share how their institutions have seen technology, not as the enemy or an inevitability but, as a robust tool to support effective instruction and enhance student learning.
