How can we get other faculty to adopt progressive teaching practices, such as those I imagine will be part of University 2.0?
A recent Campus Technology newsletter offers some suggestions:
Almost no other industry has invested as much into information technology and so little into training. This needs to change–faculty need support and new ideas. In addition, while academic support is critical, faculty exchange of ideas through internally supported and internally rewarded time is also critical. Until other faculty know what other faculty are doing, they will not learn of good instructional approaches and they will not be forced to try new techniques because they just don’t know they exist. Faculty still mainly work independently and unless that is changed, instruction can not be changed.
