Study: Faculty members open to new courseware, other innovations

A study conducted by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation found postsecondary faculty members are open to using courseware and other innovations to improve their students’ success.

The study was commissioned through FTI Consulting, which gathered data from over 4,000 higher education faculty members to better understand what influences their willingness to learn about new education innovations, incorporate new ideas in their work and share new ideas with peers.

More than 40 percent of the faculty reported already having adopted or a readiness to adopt new techniques that benefit students.
