I'm an Associate Professor of Criminal Justice at Park University, where I teach Criminal Justice, Security and Homeland Security courses. Although I've been a full-time Criminal Justice professor (scholar) for almost 10 years, my previous role was that of a Criminal Justice professional (practitioner).
I use MindTap in my Criminal Justice courses for several reasons, chief among them being its seamless integration with my institution's LMS, Canvas. As a Scholar and Practitioner responsible for course development, I also like that MindTap supports the required core learning objectives while maintaining a high level of student interest and engagement. Another reason I use MindTap is because the online text contains integrated hyperlinks that encourage interested students to dive deeper into the subject matter, without having to leave the system. Lastly, with 24/7 access to all course materials, MindTap has helped students be successful in my class.
