Masi, Anthony C.; Winer, Laura R.
Innovations in Education and Teaching International, v42 n2 p147-155 May 2005
This paper outlines McGill University's responses to the challenges of teaching and learning with information systems and technologies; it also gives a description of the underlying philosophy that is guiding these actions. The context at McGill is briefly outlined, with a discussion of the importance of planning and the relevance of these issues for a campus-based institution. A five-pronged approach is described that involves: the use of a university-wide course management system; providing support, training and help for faculty and students; the provision of appropriate hardware installations; incentives for teaching staff; and encouragement for students.
