Surveys

Oct. 24, 2016 -- Inside Higher Ed's fifth annual Survey of Faculty Attitudes on Technology explores the views of professors (and a corresponding group of academic technology administrators) on a range of technology issues.

Among them: the value (and validity) of data produced by student learning assessments, the quality of online education, and the shape of the scholarly publishing landscape.

Inside Higher Ed's 2016 Survey of Faculty Attitudes on Technology was conducted in conjunction with researchers from Gallup. Inside Higher Ed regularly surveys key higher ed professionals on a range of topics.

On Tuesday, Nov. 29, at 2 p.m. Eastern, Inside Higher Ed will present a free webinar to discuss the results of the survey. Register for the webinar here.

The Inside Higher Ed Survey of Faculty Attitudes on Technology was made possible in part with support from Barnes & Noble College, Explorance, Knowlura, Mediasite by Sonic Foundry, and VitalSource.

Booklets

"Flipping the Classroom and Other Techniques to Improve Teaching" is Inside Higher Ed's new downloadable compilation of articles.

The booklet, the latest in a series of free, print-on-demand collections, examines how instructors and institutions are experimenting with new approaches to student learning.

On Thursday, Dec. 7, at 2 p.m. EST, Inside Higher Ed's editors will lead a free webinar to discuss the booklet's themes. Register for the event here.

This booklet was made possible in part by the advertising support of Top Hat.
