EDH 6931: Innovation in Higher Education

Class Number

26191

Professor

Dr. Ben Skinner

Periods

Wednesday, Period 6-8 (12:50pm-3:50pm)

Description

Despite a long history rooted in tradition, the university continues to innovate in order to fulfill its various academic missions. Over the last few decades, postsecondary institutions have increasingly turned to new technologies to help them teach, research, and connect to past and future students. In this course, we will discuss and critically evaluate some recent technological innovations in higher education: text-based informational nudges, online learning, student information systems to track progress, social media outreach, and course evaluation and anti-plagiarism/cheating software. Throughout, our goal will be not only to understand whether these innovations have succeeded in meeting their stated goals, but also to ask for whom they have (and have not) worked.
