Innovation is sweeping the world of higher education, but not all faculty members are embracing it in their classrooms.
A new survey
from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation has found that 40 percent
of the professors surveyed use or are interested in using innovative
techniques and technologies. But of that 40 percent, only half—or 20
percent of the overall survey sample—have actually used them.
The survey asked professors whether they had used various kinds of
high-tech teaching methods, including clickers, the flipped-classroom
model, hybrid courses, and social media or discussion forums.
