Changing Role of the Faculty

Caution: Opportunity Ahead – Interesting read from edTech Digest describes a future that is already here in K-12 – Use of data and technology to create personalized learning environments. http://edtechdigest.wordpress.com/2013/11/06/caution-opportunity-ahead/

 The article prompted me to ask myself, what is the role of the faculty in this brave new world?

So I gathered a few resources here on the changing role of the faculty:

a) AAC & U Conference – Shaping Faculty Roles in a Time of Change:  Leadership for Student Learning

http://www.aacu.org/meetings/faculty/ – look at links to podcast of keynote and other presentation slides of interest.

b) Inside Higher Ed article: A New Faculty Pathhttp://www.insidehighered.com/views/2012/10/02/essay-new-effort-rethink-faculty-roles-and-treatment-adjuncts

c) Presentation by Eugene Rice, Senior Scholar from AAC & U to faculty at Howard University http://www.gs.howard.edu/vlc/jan30_presnt/Changing%20Faculty%20Role%201.30.09.pdf
