  • Higher education is undergoing a rapid transformation due to changes in societal interests and values. As educators, we must be responsive to these changes and look to develop strategies to best meet the needs of our students inside and outside of the classroom. We are bombarded with new technologies and practices to aid us in our efforts, including blended learning, learner analytics, MOOCs, open education resources (OER), mobile technologies, social media, gamification, and more. How do we decide what is right for us and our students? I will discuss considerations derived from these trends that will help us design our future.
