Speakers: Naomi Baron, Executive Director, Center for Teaching, Research and Learning, American University
In this webinar, we will hear from Naomi Baron, Professor of Linguistics at American University. With her new book entitled Words Onscreen: The Fate of Reading in a Digital World, Baron is bringing fact-based data to the case for print. Baron and her colleagues surveyed over 400 university students in the U.S., Japan, Germany, Slovakia, and India. She found a surprising preference for print, especially when students wanted to concentrate. During this webinar, Baron will share her insightful research findings.
