Interactive Technologies and the Transformation of the Curriculum.
Miller, Gary E.
It is noted, firstly, that instructional technology has had difficulty in finding its place in higher education, and secondly, that higher education is currently undergoing a transformation as it adapts to new social needs. This transformation is described as revealing itself in a resurgence of curriculum reform with emphasis on general education and in the growth of the adult student population. It is concluded that the transformation offers new opportunities for instructional technology, but also underscores the need to create a new community of interest that combines technologists, curriculum reformers, and adult learning theorists.
