Please feel free to think of this question in terms of the college as a whole, as well as in relationship to your own discipline, expertise, or experience. You might want to comment of changes in student learning styles, how (and where) we teach, class scheduling, technology uses, textbooks, etc.

  1. I see a general trend towards instructors becoming facilitators for bringing the right resources to bear at the right time to their classes. This includes 1) integrating well designed interactive tutorials from online resources like,,,, Books 24/7, etc. 2) Bringing in external expertise to the classroom via video conferencing programs such as Lync, Google+ Hangouts. or Collaborate 3) Using students as “eyes and ears” to new information and creators of new content through discussions, screencasts, videos, and class wikis.
