Degree Curricula Database: Survey of Degree Curricula in Educational Communications and Technology Worldwide
Johnson, Jenny K.
TechTrends: Linking Research and Practice to Improve Learning, v50 n6 p12-15 Nov 2006
This report of degree curricula in the field of Educational Communications and Technology reflects the influence and significant changes in the field since 1995. The most obvious influence on curricula is that of the computer, which is comparable to the impact of educational television some 50 years ago. Now, the computer is basic to distance education. It replicates the classroom, and provides access to the teacher, other students and research tools, and is part of most educational technology degree curricula. Ten years ago, only eight U.S. universities were offering bachelors degrees in teacher education with a major in educational technology, and there was no report of bachelors degrees from outside the U.S. Today at least 13 universities outside the U.S. offer bachelors degrees and 15 U.S. university programs offer bachelors degrees. In addition, the types of facilities have definitely changed over the past 10 years as focus has shifted toward meeting different needs of students. (Contains 9 tables.)
