NOVEMBER 20-22, 1996 Mohonk Mountain House
Instructional Technology, Pedagogy and the Curriculum:
KEYNOTE SPEAKER: Steven Gilbert, Director, AAHE Technology Projects
Instructional technology has been integrated into the curriculum at many colleges and universities, creating new interactive learning environments. It is heralded by many as a panacea for educational ills and a vital component of the postsecondary curriculum, but critiqued by others as simply an "add-on" or a subverter of the traditional values of the core curriculum. Regardless of the political and ideological divide among some faculty and administrators on this issue, instructional technology now plays an inevitable role in educating students at the postsecondary level. However, the question of how to use the technology most effectively and in what instructional mode and with what course content and pedagogy are areas that require more analysis and discussion. Related issues include how to use technology to restructure and design courses and to evaluate and assess learning. The most critical questions involve how technology will change the teaching and learning process, the creation of knowledge, and perhaps the very structure of higher education, creating the virtual university, the university without walls.
This conference is designed to explore the broad and complex issues underlying the interaction of technology, pedagogy, curriculum, and learning, and to stimulate dialogue across disciplines and institutional roles and agendas. The Program Committee invites proposals for paper presentations, workshops, demonstrations, and roundtables on the suggested topics and issues:
