The mission of higher education in the 21st century must focus on optimizing learning for all students. In a shift from prioritizing effective teaching to active learning, it is understood that computer-enhanced environments provide a variety of ways to reach a wide range of learners who have differing backgrounds, ages, learning needs, and expectations. Integrating technology into teaching assumes greater importance to improve the learning experience. This book, consisting of 16 chapters, is divided into three sections: i) optimizing teaching and learning; ii) optimizing course design and pedagogy; and iii) optimizing learning activities and assessments.
