Moving in Time to a Digital Tune: A Crisis in Our Identity?
Mc Taggart, Breda
International Association for Development of the Information Society, Paper presented at the International Association for Development of the Information Society (IADIS) International Conference on Cognition and Exploratory Learning in the Digital Age (CELDA) (12th, Maynooth, Greater Dublin, Ireland, Oct 24-26, 2015)
The higher educational landscape nationally and internationally has changed over the last decades, moving from an elite to a mass higher educational system (Trow,1984). Currently this system and the organisations within it are contending with new external influences on their future structure--the arrival of the technological revolution and digitalisation of learning. Technology has taken global access to our living rooms. Many embrace digitalisation of learning, but others are not so positive. Using identity theory, we examine the potential impact of this shift within the Institute of Technology sector in the Republic of Ireland with a particular emphasis on exploring the impact of learning technology on organisational and academic identity, concluding that exploring this impact is the first step on the journey of digitalisation of learning.
