“There are so many opportunities to incorporate 技术 in the classroom to enhance how 教师 teach and how students learn. It is not about employing technologies simply as bells and whistles. It requires thinking hard about what we want students to learn and how 技术 can help achieve that.”

McGraw Center for Teaching and Learning
The McGraw Center is at the heart of efforts to integrate innovative educational technologies into the academic experience. The center encour年龄s the exploration of new media and digital tools in and around the classroom to encour年龄 active, collaborative and creative learning.
The University’s initiative in online education benefits students on campus and around the world. We enable 教师 to enrich their teaching to undergraduate and graduate students at Princeton, while sharing free course content with interested learners outside the University.
More than one million students have enrolled in the many free noncredit courses (or MOOCs) that Princeton 教师 have offered online through the University’s partnerships with Coursera, edX, 新生和Kadenze.
In the course “A 历史 of the World Since 1300,” the professor records his lectures online for students to watch at their own pace, freeing up class time for in-depth discussions and global history labs.
The class is one example of how some Princeton 教师 use online tools and other multimedia resources to “flip” their classroom so students stay active and eng年龄d with the material, and have more time for robust in-person interactions and collaborative projects.
The Council on Science and Technology
The Council on Science and Technology (CST) inspires and prepares all undergraduates, regardless of their majors, to become scientifically and technologically literate citizens and decision-makers. It supports intellectual exchange, 课程开发, and interdisciplinary research and collaborations in science, 技术, 工程 and 数学.
