Description

So many college professors these days are miffed about how to capture students’ attention at a time when smartphones, tablets, and laptops offer virtually limitless options for being distracted in class. Out of frustration, we often vent about how our students are mentally elsewhere. This can lead to feeling resentful toward them and uncertain about what to do to better engage them. This session provides an opportunity for professors to come to together to discuss the nature of this problem and best practices for addressing it.
