"BUILDS OFF OUR PREVIOUS SUCCESS: Small Teaching (9781118944493, February 2016) has sold 27,498 units life-to-date. We are building off of our success with that title to address the specific challenges that online instructors face in higher education. Author James Lang is partnering with eLearning expert Flower Darby to write and promote the book. RAPIDLY GROWING SEGMENT OF STUDENT POPULATION: According to the Online Learning Consortium, in 2016, 5.8 million students were enrolled in at least one online course. This represents a 263% increase over the last decade. Two-thirds of these 5.8 million students take online courses through public institutions. ONLINE LEARNING IS PREFERRED BY TODAY'S LEARNER: The Online Learning Consortium study also shows that 90% of today's student believes online learning is as good as or better than the traditional classroom experience. INCREASED ENGAGEMENT WITH EDTECH: A survey of university Chief Information Officers shows that 96% believe adaptive technology has potential to improve student outcomes, while 87% believe technology provides a richer experience for students. Students agree, except that 4 out of 5 would also say universities should be doing more with technology-based learning experiences. This book will help higher education instructors do that"-- Provided by publisher.
