Educational Technologies: Productivity in Higher Education. Final Report.
Harrison, Shelley A., Ed.; Stolurow, Lawrence M.
Full texts are provided of the individual papers presented at a symposium held to investigate technology-based systems for improving productivity in higher education. These systems, which marry an engineering systems approach with behavioral objectivism, are studied in the context of three specific learning environments: 1) grouped and bounded environments, 2) individualized bounded environments, and 3) personalized open environments. Each paper discusses a technology-based system supportive of one of these three learning environments and deals with the topics of mode and media, management, and measurement as addressed by their systems. Comments of discussants and reactants are also included; these analyze the effectiveness of the systems in supporting learning objectives, their ability to measure outcomes and manage resources, their capacity for gaining acceptance and validation, and their relationship to other demonstrated systems operating in common learning environments.
