Independent Scholars
and the Digital Divide

And Independent Scholars

At the University of North Texas in Denton

Friends and colleagues who are graduate teaching fellows and adjuncts, instructors and lecturers–all non-tenured educators in the North Texas area, please join us for a Knowledge Cafe on teaching in the 21st Century.
 As you know, schools are rushing to promote mixed courses as well as MOOCs as the future of higher education. This is based on two assumptions:
 1)      All youth today are digital natives and
2)      Everyone in America has equal ease of access to the Internet.
 Most of you who are teaching at our local community colleges as well as those instructing freshmen requisite courses at our universities know that often neither of these assumptions is a safe one to make.
 Come and help us discuss ways to deal with the Digital Divide based on your own experience.
 A “Fortune Cookie” session will follow to discuss contingent faculty (adjunct) issues.

 Please register your attendance by email at Keith.Brown@unt.edu
