In the next 10 years, our society will transition from the Industrial Age of the last century to the Internet Age of the 21st century.
Community and technical colleges will need to be transformed to meet the new requirements of society, your local economy, your students and the quality of life in your community.
Is your faculty ready?
The first chapter of "Pedagogy of the 21st Century," written by William Draves and Julie Coates, gives you a glimpse at some of the other pedagogical changes experts are expecting, including:
- How web-based education will replace brick-and-mortar schools in the 21st Century
- How adapting to new pedagogical strategies can boost completion rates
- What was seen as "cheating" in the last century will be seen as "collaboration" in this century
On March 3 and 4, the Faculty Development Conference in Fort Lauderdale will offer even more strategic knowledge and the latest, most advanced faculty development strategies and techniques for new and experienced professionals.
Professionally trained faculty members are able to use their time more effectively, teach hybrid and online courses as well as face to face, and are more apt to adjust to new technologies and pedagogical strategies. In the increasingly competitive environment facing higher education in the years ahead, your institution cannot afford to fall behind in teaching quality.
