Abstract

The future of technology on the university campus has reached a critical juncture. In this paper we propose eight areas in which substantial changes in university education may be at hand: Students, Instructional Design and Pedagogic Techniques, Teachers and the Institutional Setting, New Forms of Content and Exchange, Intellectual Property, Infrastructure, Power and Data, Support, and Security & Backup. It is our determination that leadership must play a critical role in the equation, not only to implement technological developments but also to plan adequately for long-term changes. We conclude with eight hypotheses about technology and learning in the University intended to be provocative and to stimulate discussion and analysis.
