Higher Education Talk 2014
It is not enough to be a content expert anymore. Science instructors also need to be cognizant of what’s happening in higher education in general – from legislation to the job market. I have “hit the books” to research educational trends, identify various information delivery methods, and examine societal expectations about the goals of a college education. After delving into the literature and mining the government’s website, I gained an understanding of the influences currently affecting the undergraduate world. This talk highlights my findings on higher education and describes how these findings can be applied to teaching science in 2014.
