Praise for Effective Teaching with Technology in Higher Education "This is not one of those technology-is-the-panacea-for-all-educational-ills books-that's why I liked it. Much more sensibly, it takes the position that in certain contexts and for particular purposes technology can promote better teaching and more learning." -Maryellen Weimer, editor, The Teaching Professor "Distance education deans, coordinators, instructors, trainers, and instructional designers will all benefit from the information Bates and Poole share with their readers. They elaborate on the steps to teaching with technology-from vision to design to implementation to maintenance." -Judith Norton, director of training, California Virtual Campus, Professional Development Center "This book is a comprehensive resource for educators-by educators. It answers the questions that we all face as we strive to increase access and improve the quality of our distance education programs." -Bill Sollecito, director, Public Health Leadership Program, School of Public Health, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill "Finally! A faculty-centered tech book! Bates and Poole are faculty and write for faculty who want to lighten their work-load and heighten student learning. A must for today's faculty, regardless of discipline." -Laura L. B. Border, director, Graduate Teacher Program, University of Colorado, Bouldershow more
