You are invited to join a group of colleagues who will be reading and discussing the book Minds Online: Teaching Effectively with Technology, by Michelle D. Miller.  

The publisher’s website describes the book as follows: “From wired campuses to smart classrooms to massive open online courses (MOOCs), digital technology is now firmly embedded in higher education. But the dizzying pace of innovation, combined with a dearth of evidence on the effectiveness of new tools and programs, challenges educators to articulate how technology can best fit into the learning experience. Minds Online is a concise, nontechnical guide for academic leaders and instructors who seek to advance learning in this changing environment, through a sound scientific understanding of how the human brain assimilates knowledge.”  

The group will be facilitated by Barbara Draude and will meet three times:

  • September 18; September 25; October 2
  • 3-4 PM
  • LT&ITC, Library 348

Each participant will be provided with a copy of the book in advance of the first meeting.  

Participation is limited; if you are interested in joining the group, please register as soon as possible.
