Currents in Teaching and Learning is a peer-reviewed electronic journal that fosters exchanges among teacher-scholars across the disciplines. Published twice a year (typically one issue in fall, one in spring), Currents seeks to improve teaching and learning in higher education with short reports on classroom practices as well as longer research, or theoretical articles related to teaching and learning.
Digital technology has an enormous role in education at all levels, now more than ever. As new hardware and software continually emerge, we must ask ourselves whether and how it serves our pedagogical goals—whether it improves our effectiveness as instructors, and accommodates the needs of our students.
