The 21st Century Professor: Challenges of Digital Learning

If what you read is true, then the 21st century professor designs curriculum to support student success and creates an engaging classroom whether it is face-to-face, online, or in a blended learning environment.

This professor engages students through a variety of learning strategies, creates effective instructional materials and assesses student learning with a variety of tools and strategies.

That's quite a professor.

This week, I will be doing two workshops at Union County College in NJ examining the professional practices of the 21st century professor and looking at some of those tools and strategies that are being used.

"The 21st Century Professor: Challenges of Digital Learning" will include mobile learning, apps, learning networks, open education resources (including open textbooks), and collaborative learning online. We'll look at many tools from Google Docs to Massive Open Online Courses (MOOC).

We will also consider what the evolving qualities of a professor in the 21st century seem to be. Any nominations?
