More than 400 people attended the Innovations in Teaching and Learning Conference March 4-5 at K-State. A video of the March 5 keynote by well-known author David Pogue is now online via the conference website at theitl.org (click “Watch David Pogue’s keynote!” at top right).

In a captivating “Science, Schmience: Why America’s Failing Science & How We Can Turn It Around” (88 minutes), Pogue humorously and compellingly addresses the four root problems he sees, as well as solutions that can reverse the continuing decline of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) students in America’s educational system.
