Mary Taylor Huber, "Books Worth Reading" for Change magazine "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."

"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."

"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," -L. Dee Fink, author, Creating Significant Learning Experience
San Francisco, CA - 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 (Jossey-Bass, September 2012, ISBN: 978-1-118-11035-5, $36.00 / Paperback / also available as an e-book) shows how technology is most powerfully used outside the classroom, and when used effectively, can ensure that students arrive to class more prepared for meaningful interaction with faculty. It offers practical advice for faculty and administrators on how to engage students with new technology, while restructuring classes into more active learning environments.
Insightful and provocative, it shows how teachers, instructors and administrators can navigate the revolutionary present in order to remain relevant for the future.
