How Do Students of Today Learn? The New Epistemology

Dr. King of the Office of Student Effectiveness at UNCP recommends a recent article in the “Chronicle of Higher Education” for faculty reading.

 I would recommend it also.  It suggests that the revolution in students’ processes of learning today is real and increasing. 

A fact in tonight’s CNN report underscores how students are getting most of their knowledge: for every six hours they sit in front of a computer screen, one-half of an hour is spent sitting behind an open book.

Should we be alarmed?  Or should we accept and herald such a tidal change in how the college students of today are learning and how they value so much less traditional education, such as lectures?

Go to the link below to read the entire article–on a screen, of course, unless you prefer to print it out first, as I often do:
