Deep Learning for a Digital Age: Technology's Untapped Potential To Enrich Higher Education.
Weigel, Van B.
This book shows how faculty can help students develop skills in research, problem solving, critical thinking, and knowledge management by using Web-based collaboration tools. This innovative approach to teaching and learning emphasizes the use of virtual spaces, "knowledge rooms," where students "gather" to collaborate. The chapters are: (1) "Beyond the Virtual Classroom"; (2) "The Commoditization of Instruction"; (3) "Transforming the Classroom into Knowledge Rooms"; (4) "Building an Infrastructure for Depth Education"; and (5) "New Horizons for Higher Education." (Contains 3 tables, 12 figures, 4 exhibits, and 293 references.) (SLD)
