Digital Technology and the Culture of Teaching and Learning in Higher Education
Lai, Kwok-Wing
Australasian Journal of Educational Technology, v27 n8 spec iss p1263-1275 2011
This paper discusses how the use of digital technologies may support a shift of cultural practices in teaching and learning, to better meet the needs of 21st century higher education learners. A brief discussion of the changing needs of the learners is provided, followed by a review of the overall impact of digital technologies on teaching and learning. In the final section we suggest how digital technologies may provide a more active and flexible learning experience by adopting a participatory pedagogical approach and by blending formal learning with informal learning.
