"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."
—Mary Taylor Huber
, "Books Worth Reading" for Change
"This is an important book. Everyone who is concerned about the future of higher education should read it. In a highly readable and lively style, Bowen makes the most intelligent argument I’ve encountered about how we should think about teaching and learning and emerging technologies. It is also a powerful guide to more effective teaching and deeper learning."
, provost and vice president for Academic Affairs and professor of history and urban education, University of the District of Columbia; and author, What the Best College Teachers Do
"Teaching Naked is a persuasive proposal for using technology outside the classroom to free up time inside the classroom for more meaningful student-faculty interaction. Insightful and provocative, it is filled with practical advice for teachers, administrators, and institutions on how to navigate the revolutionary present in order to remain relevant for the future."
—Elizabeth Barkley, professor of music, Foothill College, and author, Student Engagement Techniques and Collaborative Learning Techniques
"This is one of the most exciting books I have read in a long time. I could not stop sharing quotes from it with my wife, also an educator, while reading it. It provides incredible insight and foresight in a fresh and bold analysis of what we could be doing and should be doing with technology in higher education."
