Harnessing Technological Change to Serve a Changing Student Demography: Strategies for Integrating Asynchronous Teaching and Learning Approaches. Videoconference #3; Making Critical Choices: Technology and the New Academic Culture
Tuesday, January 1, 2002
The current pace of innovation, coinciding with rapid demographic changes in student populations, challenges institutions to make careful and informed decisions. In this videoconference we will look critically at what seems promising, what to be wary of, and what may be over the horizon.
Between November 2001 and April 2002, AN-MSI sponsored a series of six two-hour interactive videoconferences dealing with online instruction and the changing technology that supports the new culture of asynchronous teaching and learning. The series facilitated the dialogue and planning that is needed to move MSIs toward more effective use of innovative networking and telecommunications technology for distance-developed instruction. The series emphasizes the broad set of changes that are needed to launch successful online instruction that responds to the needs of a changing and culturally diverse student demography.
