  • Non-tenure-track faculty members are the majority of the teaching force, so what are colleges and universities doing to help them develop as teachers? As for many issues related to adjuncts, there’s a significant data gap on the topic -- in part because adjuncts are diverse and decentralized, making them hard to study.

  • The ability to make decisions based on data, with its inherent uncertainties and variability, is a complex and vital skill  in the modern world. The need for such quantitative critical thinking occurs in many different contexts, and although it is  an important goal of education, that goal is seldom being achieved. We argue that the key element for developing this ability  is repeated practice in making decisions based on data, with feedback on those decisions.

  • For most people around the world, “the first time and actually only time they’ll get on the Internet is with a mobile device – their phone,” said the World Bank’s Michael Trucano, Senior Education & Technology Policy Specialist and Global Lead for Innovation in Education.

  • The last decade, researchers and educators have shown particular interest for the use of educational video games in mathematics education, in an effort to provide educational character to entertainment. In this paper we represent some of the most representative studies which evaluate the effects of video games on mathematics achievement as well as the improvement of memory, attention and cognitive skills. As indicated by the studies, video games may constitute useful tools in mathematics education as they support children’s comprehension on fundamental concepts, but also motivate them to see positively the course of mathematics.

  • Plagiarism detection software from vendors such as Turnitin is often criticized for labeling clumsy student writing as plagiarism. Now a set of new tests suggests the software lets too many students get away with it.

  • A key to achieving this kind of environment is assessment.  Because flipped learning is more decentralized and personalized than a  traditional course design, the challenge is to have assessments that  provide reliable, actionable information about student learning in the  various phases of flipped learning that is as up to the minute as  possible. Armed with this knowledge about student learning, instructors  can provide just the right amount of support at just the right time,  anytime.
