Maricopa County Community Coll. District, Tempe, AZ. Maricopa Center for Learning and Instruction.
The Maricopa Community Colleges in Tempe (Arizona) have made strong commitments to the acquisition and utilization of electronic technology, as was emphasized in their 1988 Technology Retreat, a gathering to discuss making the best use of available and future educational technology. The keynote speaker, Stephen C. Ehrmann, presented "Specifications and Strategies: A Sustainable Investment in Technologies." In a small group setting, participants wrote statements about how students learn, technology implementation, and the present organizational structure. In another small group, retreat participants wrote some statements about the future and how use of technology can be enhanced. Other small groups addressed the following topics: (1) alternative funding for technology applications; (2) integration of learning theory, content, and technology; (3) library/learning resource center of the future; (4) designing computer facilities; (5) improving access to learning with technology; (6) where we want to go and how we get there; (7) the classroom of the future; and (8) cross-college collaboration. Two figures illustrate the keynote address. (SLD)
