Technology continues to rapidly evolve, and in the past few years digital learning solutions have provided new and exciting ways to teach and learn critical topics. With all of the new digital learning solutions available, it can be overwhelming for educational programs to select the right learning solution for their student population and program needs.
Today’s digital natives have an important role to play in providing feedback to help ensure that educational programs are providing the most useful and effective learning materials to students. To meet the needs of both instructors and students in today’s educational environment, Cengage Learning created MindTap®—a new approach to digital learning.
Each year, Cengage Learning exhibits at the National Leadership Conference hosted by HOSA-Future Health Professionals. HOSA’s mission is to provide health science education students with opportunities for knowledge, skill, and leadership development. As a sponsor of the Competitive Events Luncheon and student scholarship program, Cengage Learning is a committed partner with HOSA in driving the organization’s mission to advance health science education. This year’s National Leadership Conference—held in Anaheim, California from June 24–27—attracted over 8,000 attendees, most of whom were HOSA student members and their advisors.
Given Cengage Learning’s commitment to developing and enhancing the MindTap digital learning platform for health science courses, HOSA presented a valuable opportunity to reach students to learn more about their interests, needs, and challenges, as well as to collect student feedback on the effectiveness of MindTap.
