IN CASE YOU MISSED IT

Our most-e-mailed story in June was Dan Berrett's profile of RPI professor George Plopper, who has changed his teaching and made assessment part of the learning process -- for both himself and his students. More than 400 readers found Professor Plopper's experience worth sharing with colleagues. But there's nothing like a frontal assault to get people reading and commenting. Dan's interview with Naomi Schaefer Riley, author of The Faculty Lounges and Other Reasons Why You Won't Get the College Education You Paid For (Ivan R. Dee), topped the most-viewed chart and not only garnered more comments than any other story in June, but it's one of the top ten most-debated stories of the year to date.

THIS MONTH

AUDIO: At noon Eastern on July 29, Inside Higher Ed presents Learning from Failures, a one-hour audio conference featuring Kay M. McClenney, director of the Community College Survey of Student Engagement. Ms. McClenney will discuss the kinds of questions to ask about courses with high failure rates and the kinds of policy changes and practices that some colleges have adopted based on the answers. Click here to register or for more information about this low-cost audio conference.
