- Accreditation and assessment will continue to be extremely important factors in a university’s “saleability” to its potential students and future employers of its students.
- In composition and literature classrooms, the ability to incorporate the best practices of on-site and online modalities to best meet students’ needs stands out.
- It’s hard to separate almost any teaching, grading, or student interaction issue without touching on technology and its many benefits. Still, we must always be careful not to let technology drive change. What works best is often dependant on numerous factors, of which technology and its potential uses are only a part.
