ALTEC (Advanced Learning Technologies Center): Promoting Faculty Use of Instructional Technology at Arizona State University.
Sager, Harvey; Konomos, Philip
The first of two parts of this paper, "From Computer Literacy to Technological Literacy: The Challenge for Faculty Development," traces some of the problems and solutions associated with faculty development issues surrounding computers and telecommunications technologies. It is argued that although the need for technological literacy among higher education faculty is recognized, successful faculty development programs using computer technology such as computer assisted instruction, word processing, database management, and other computer software, are often not implemented. This part contains 16 annotated references. The second part, "ALTEC: Implementing an Advanced Learning Technologies Laboratory for Faculty at Arizona State University," describes a solution to the need for faculty development programs at Arizona State University, i.e., the development of ALTEC (Advanced Learning Technologies Education Center) to meet the faculty's need for hands-on exposure to and experience with state-of-the-art educational technology. It is noted that the ALTEC laboratory provides a place where faculty members can become familiar with advanced instructional technologies, including laser discs, 8mm video, VHS Hi Fi, communications satellites, and multi-image systems.
