    Great article that's about ethics of online technologies. Many of the analogies stuck me as similar to making sure technology enhances learning and not using it just for technology's sake.

The TOMORROW'S COLLEGE series: Don't Lecture Me - 2 views

  •  
    This was a great radio documentary that aired this Sunday on WPSU. Did anyone else catch it?
    Really great info about how professors are changing the ways they teach, moving away from lectures to techniques like peer instruction even in large classes. I was also excited to hear it mention the classroom idea we are implementing in the Knowledge Commons in the library. A classroom where there is no "front" as another way to change up traditional teaching.
