DeVry Inc. Layoffs

Topics regarding layoffs at DeVry Inc.

Has technology become a distraction?

We hear so much about how great group projects are; how "engagement" increases with the use of IFF; and how much the use of video and other technology enhances the learning experience. To some degree, this is true; however, I feel like we've become... read more
