Modern Pedagogy

How did teaching and learning theory get from where it began to now? From the Sage on the Stage (heavy lecture, high stakes exams, and memorization) to Learning in the 21St Century (collaborative, innovative, and experiential), we have progressed and broadened the learning experience to meet a globalized audience of learners. To help and encourage you to move towards a more modern pedagogical approach, below are a few resources to help you stay abreast of trends, approaches, and examples of quality teaching and learning.
