Roane State’s Mobilization Initiative
Roane State is actively promoting a Mobilization Initiative. We are working to offer iPads to our full time and adjunct professors so that technology and new models of teaching are available. We are intent on increasing student engagement in our traditional, hybrid, and online classes. Hear what Roane State Community College’s Vice President, Dr. Diane Ward; Director of Library Services, Robert Benson; a range of faculty from a variety of disciplines; and some of our students have to say about the inclusion of mobile technology in the classroom.
