FREE PFF Workshop: Changing Contexts in Higher Education (Workshop)
The world is changing radically. The world our students come from and the future they will enter is nothing like the world we experienced as students ourselves. Are we ready as college educators to prepare these students to succeed in their emerging futures? This workshop introduces you to the global paradigm shift toward a knowledge and creative economy–a technologically mediated, information-rich world marked by rapid and constant change. We will explore the implications of this for us as teachers in college classrooms.
Free to all students across all majors and discipline. RSVP here. more»
