The Digital Dynamic: Means to an End

Screenshot 2014-08-07 11.53.09My students all received a survey from me (and I hope you filled it out) assessing their digital participation and, to a degree, comfort, which should give them a sign of things to come.

There are a lot of digital tools in our academic toolbox.

It was a treat to be included in a recent PBS/Media Shift article on “What It Takes to Go ‘Digital First’ in Communication Law,”and iTunes U, iBooks and iPads are featured prominently in our teaching methods and madness.

But know that for our classes, tech is a tool to learning–not a replacement for it. We are embracing the new venue in which students have proven themselves willing to share and incorporate information. Our motto: We have to meet our students where and how they want to learn.

I can’t tell you how excited I am to start the adventure that is academic year 2014-2015. To paraphrase the Grateful Dead, may we all enjoy the ride.
