The Evolution of Electronic Pedagogy in an Outcome Based Learning Environment: Learning, Teaching, and the Culture of Technology at California's Newest University--CSU Monterey Bay.
Baldwin, George
California State University Monterey Bay (CSUMB) is the newest university in the CSU system. CSUMB's vision statement distinguishes the institution from others in the system by promoting learning paradigms of Outcome Based Education (OBE) and communication technologies of distributed learning (DL). Faculty are committed to the experimental use of technologies as resources to people, catalysts for learning, and providers of increased access and enriched quality learning. The university begins its fifth year in its commitment to create a culture of innovation in conceptual design and organization, embracing OBE and DL paradigms. This formative narrative of the institution's experiences concludes that: CSUMB has had difficulty finding faculty with sufficient pedagogical experience with multimedia teaching tools and OBE to move directly to the new paradigm; and the organizational structure of University Learning Requirements (ULR) committees has mandated assessment by courses rather than a true OBE approach.
