Conference on Information Technology in Education and Training, Session 4.
Northwest Regional Educational Lab., Portland, OR.
The fourth session of IT@EDU98 consisted of five papers and was chaired by Dao Huu Chi (Van Lang University, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam). "Impacts of Information Technology in Education and Training" (Son Thanh Vuong) examines issues related to reengineering education infrastructure in the information society, including elements of effective computer science, how to partner with industry, the need for making educational structure more flexible, new possibilities in distance education, and some Web-based education experiences. "Management Changes in the Information Age" (Pattrick Tantribeau) looks at the effects on management of viewing information as a resource. "Restructuring the University for Technological Change" (Antony Bates) outlines 12 strategies for change and argues that if the new information technologies are to play a central role in university teaching, each institution needs to develop a set of strategies for change which will amount to no less than restructuring the university. "Interactive Multimedia Technology Contributing in Solving the Problem of National Education" (Tran Ha Nam) is abstracted, but the full text is not included in this proceedings volume. "Information Technology Will Transform the University" (Wm. A. Wulf) discusses changes that will occur in the university in scholarship, textbooks, libraries, teaching, the importance of place, and uncertainties. (Some papers contain references.) (SWC)
