Technology is profoundly changing education. If students are going to continue to pay enormous sums for campus classes, colleges will need to provide more than what can be found online and maximize "naked" face–to–face contact with faculty.Teaching Naked shows how technology is most powerfully usedoutside the classroom and, when used effectively, how it can ensure that students arrive to class more prepared for meaningful interaction with faculty. José Bowen introduces a new way to think about learning and technology that prioritizes the benefits of the human dimension in education. Here he offers practical advice for faculty and administrators on how to engage students with new technology, while restructuring classes into more active learning environments.

"It′s true that Bowen is interested in creating classroom space for interaction, discussion, reflection and engagement. But the book part persuasion, part how–to spends a great deal more time on what technology offers for the design of educational experiences....Teaching Naked [is a] good introduction to some of the most notable and/or promising types of resources for higher education."
