Glenn Ricart - Diversity Hastens the Multiversity

Wednesday, January 1, 1997

Abstract

Glenn Ricart, Director of the Computer Science Center at the University of Maryland/College Park (Currently on sabbatical and working as Program Manager, Advanced Research Projects Agency (ARPA)), will offer a vision of how technology may change the fundamental character of higher education, in "Diversity Hastens the Multiversity."

"Will faculty and students find digital classrooms with digital hyper-textbooks and digital libraries a more conducive environment for education? The most innovative uses of information technology in our institutions, if widely adopted, may tend to encourage groups of higher education institutions to work much more closely with each other. In time, these groups will diminish institutional identity and encourage the formation of new multiversities."
