Technology, Learning, and Community (TLC): Perspectives from Teaching Excellence Award Recipients.
Milliron, Mark David; Miles, Cindy L.
This monograph discusses educational issues related to information technology by drawing on the expertise of community college Teaching Excellence Award winners. It offers a basic framework for using information technology in the community college to improve and expand learning while holding fast to a focus on community. Faculty point out that the connection capabilities made possible by information technology enhance interactive and collaborative learning. In addition, students' use of technology tools to access and analyze information help foster critical thinking and the construction of knowledge. Analysis of study findings from qualitative and quantitative data, derived from the responses of almost 2,000 community college faculty, revealed that faculty perceptions regarding information technology and instruction can be divided into three conceptual categories relating to technology, learning, and community. This monograph explores study results pertaining to each of these concepts and places them in the broader context of research and practice in the national higher education scene.
