The book “Teaching Naked How Moving Technology Out of Your College Classroom Will Improve Student Learning” has won the Frederick W. Ness Book Award.
The Association of American Colleges and Universities announced the award will be given to author Jose Antonio Bowen at the group’s annual meeting Jan. 23 in Dallas.
Bowen is dean of the Meadows School of the Arts and professor of music at Southern Methodist University in Dallas.
The honor is given for a book that best illustrates the goals of a contemporary liberal education.
Teaching Naked is not what you think from the title.–getting rid of technology. Instead, it actually tells how to use technology outside the classroom, so students come to class prepared for discussion.
