The way students learn and instructors teach is undergoing a radical shift, and the role of the traditional print "textbook" as the foundational tool for instruction is changing along with the traditional publishing model. To help shed light on these changes, BISG's Student Attitudes Toward Content in Higher Education survey continues to provide a baseline for tracking the rapid evolution underway in the higher education market. Join Nadine Vassallo, BISG's Project Manager of Research and Information, as she shares data from the most recent volume of Student Attitudes, providing an up-to-the-moment analysis of the current behavioral trends that will inform the development of the higher education industry, and learn more about how Student Attitudes can offer your practical guidance for refining your business strategies in an ever-shifting marketplace.
