About the Author:

A well-known name in FYE circles, Staley is a leader in faculty development nation-wide.

She also represented the university as a Fulbright Fellow, teaching in the former Soviet Union in 1996. Dr. Staley earned a B.A. in education from Ball State University, and an M.A. in linguistics and Ph.D. in communication from the University of Colorado, Boulder.

Review:

"[MindTap] is student-friendly. There are different ways that students can find the subject matter engaging by catering to their learning preference styles. It is content-driven. There is a host of information which is well laid out and brings about a higher level of understanding, which encourages time for reflection and application, which is an ongoing process throughout the textbook."

"Customizing [MindTap] to only include what I want is a huge thing to me. Too many programs contain so much that I never use. It is confusing for the students and they often get lost in the material. I like all the attempts of engagement that have been included. Lots of opportunities for students to reflect and answer questions."
