The Role of Faculty in the Digital Education of Tomorrow
Butson, Russell
Journal of Computing in Higher Education, v17 n1 p3-16 Sep 2005
Signs that a huge portion of our world is becoming digital are ubiquitous; the educational arena is not exempt. The influence of the Web and the dot-com phenomena signals a pending revolution. As a result, the model of teaching that has been the hallmark of higher education apparently has little place in tomorrow's instruction. Rather, computer technology may hold the key to a more virtuous form of instruction, a model of instruction that, in part, is not new but whose use has been hindered by the prevailing fear of technology. However, promotion of such a model could assure faculty a significant place in this new era.
