Technology on Campus: An Uneven Marriage

Monday, January 1, 1990


This article describes the growing disparity in the way information technology is being used in four areas of the university -- research, administration, the library, and teaching. The author argues that little or no progress has been made in using technology in the teaching/learning process, and advocates changing the incentive and reward structure so that innovative uses of technology in the classroom will be as valued as published research. He concludes that institutions will have to change the way they educate students to ensure theirpreparation for modern society.
