Industry/Postsecondary Education Partnership for Faculty Development.
The project addressed the need for Oregon higher education faculty to receive state-of-the art information from Oregon businesses and industries in computer science, business, and engineering areas. Planning for a statewide interactive Eudcational Television Network (ED-NET) has been underway in Oregon for several years. The network will involve cooperation among community colleges, four-year colleges/universities, business and industry, K-12 schools, state agencies, and the Oregon Public Broadcasting System. Over a 20-month period, the project completed 27 faculty development videotape programs by leading industry experts and pilot tested the use of a variety of telecommunications technologies to deliver these programs. Videotapes are available in a videotape library and cover such topics as: knowledge engineering, desktop publishing, diode lasers for high speed applications, programming languages, and superconductivity. Appended are the video catalog, examples of comments on programs provided during the project, and a project contract. (DB)
