This session will address concerns (i.e., myths, fears, etc.) that many faculty members have about digital education and introduce some of the best practices in this area. In addition, speakers will provide faculty and student examples from around the Laureate Network— highlighting the value of digital teaching and learning. The intention of this session is not to provide a comprehensive overview of this important subject but, rather, to allay fears and relate the instructional role of faculty teaching face-to-face to the emerging world of digital teaching and learning.


The top takeaways from the session include:

1.     Reflect on key myths surrounding digital teaching and learning including an analysis of the empirical literature relating to these myths.

2.     Consider the adage, "Good pedagogy is good pedagogy" as it relates to digital teaching and learning.


This is a must-attend webinar for higher education professionals, including:

  • Faculty
  • Instructional Designers
  • Academic technology professionals
