Instructors at universities face many of the same concerns. They have to prepare and organize their courses, teach those courses and provide assignments, assess the learning of the students, and then evaluate the effectiveness of their teaching style. Even though these experiences are common, learning environments in higher education are increasingly diverse, and this diversity impacts every aspect of the institution.

Technology and Diversity in Higher Education: New Challenges provides current and effective educational practices, and examines new challenges involving emerging technologies in increasingly diverse learning environments. This book studies current knowledge on how students learn, and the application of that knowledge to technology.
