Teaching, Learning, and Research in 21st Century Community Colleges
By James L. Morrison
Keynote Address and Workshop at the 28th Annual Meeting of the Southeastern Association for Community College Research
Sheraton at Waterside
Technology has substantially changed the way community colleges do business, and it is beginning to change not only the way they conduct research but the very fundamentals of the teaching/learning process itself. How do community colleges stay abreast in a world where technology evolves at a rapid and bewildering pace? What strategies do they employ to remain on the cutting edge of technology? How can they afford the high price tag of technology? How has technology changed institutional research in community colleges? How has it changed teaching and learning? These questions related to the conference theme, the impact of technology on teaching, learning, and research, and served as guiding questions for the keynote address and workshop.
