Active Learning and Technology: Designing Change for Faculty, Students, and Institutions
Moore, Anne H.; Fowler, Shelli B.; Watson, C. Edward
EDUCAUSE Review, v42 n5 p42-44, 46, 51-52, 54, 56, 58, 60 Sep-Oct 2007
Much of the rhetoric about contemporary higher education suggests that colleges and universities need to embrace change due to advances in knowledge, technology, transportation, and more--advances that have dramatically shifted the way one functions in the modern world. But what manner of change for learning itself do the public narratives suggest? Commission reports, report cards, and public agenda profiles of U.S requirements for higher education seem to be asking for substantive change. In this article, the authors talk about designing change for faculty, students, and institutions, maintaining that a robust, sustained faculty-development program is at the heart of transformational individual and institutional change. Transformational development efforts must involve systematic, goal-directed, sustained activities that are integral to the daily work of academic community members. (Contains 17 notes.)
