Teaching and Learning Challenges of 2009

Educause just released a list of the top teaching and learning challenges for 2009

the list is

  • Creating learning environments that promote active learning, critical thinking, collaborative learning, and knowledge creation.

  • Developing 21st-century literacies among students and faculty (information, digital, and visual).

  • Reaching and engaging today's learner.

  • Encouraging faculty adoption and innovation in teaching and learning with IT.

  • Advancing innovation in teaching and learning (with technology) in an era of budget cuts.

In many ways, this has always been the list of challenges (well, with the exception of the second with its reference to that special beast the 21st century learner). So it will be interesting to see how people make the issues more specific in the Educause wiki.
