MLA Honorable Mention

We are pleased to announce that Elizabeth Losh, author of The War on Learning, is receiving an honorable mention in the competition for this year’s Mina P. Shaughnessy Prize, sponsored by the Modern Language Association (MLA). The prize is awarded annually for an outstanding work on language, culture, literature, or literacy with strong application to the teaching of English. It will be presented at the MLA conference in Philadelphia on January 7, 2017.

Gaining Ground in the Digital University

Behind the lectern stands the professor, deploying course management systems, online quizzes, wireless clickers, PowerPoint slides, podcasts, and plagiarism-detection software. In the seats are the students, armed with smartphones, laptops, tablets, music players, and social networking. Although these two forces seem poised to do battle with each other, they are really both taking part in a war on learning itself. In this book, Elizabeth Losh examines current efforts to “reform” higher education by applying technological solutions to problems in teaching and learning.
