Advances in Technology in Continuing Education: Who Should Foot the Bill?
Hanson, Matthew
Journal of Inquiry and Action in Education, v5 n2 p38-42 2013
Every continuing education unit must be at the forefront of the technology boom in order to remain attractive to students and best prepare them for the work force. Unfortunately, there is a significant cost associated with technological advancement sparking the debate over who should foot the bill for innovations. This article applies the Higher Education Benefits Policy (IHEP, 1998) as well as other relevant literature to help resolve the debate. The benefits of technological advancement to higher education extend well beyond the individual receiving a degree; thus students should not solely receive the additional cost burden. Institutions of higher education should work to fill the needs of the public and private sectors. All involved should share the costs of technological advancement.
