Faculty Spotlight: Colin Hughes

Helping Students See the Value of Packback

Colin Hughes wants his students to see value in the tools they’re buying. By incorporating students’ Packback posts into class each week, students can see the importance of their questions and how their posts relate to the rest of the course.

Many of our students have an incredibly tight budget where $20 to $30 really matters to them…and none of the students are talking about how they wish they didn’t have to pay for this particular program.”
