James Lang, author of Small Teaching, has a new book coming out. Teaching Distracted Minds addresses the use (by students) of technology in the classroom, in the context of broader studies of attention and distraction. Read more about this forthcoming book, and Lang’s reasons for writing it, here.
On Monday, May 14, Judson welcomed Dr. Ashley Finley, Assoc. VP of Academic Affairs at Dominican University of California, and Senior Fellow, AAC&U, to lead our spring faculty workshop.
