2 Instructional Technology Enhancing Education

3 The world we live in Internet use doubles every 100 days. Radio was in existence 38 years before 50 million people tuned in; TV took 13 years to reach that benchmark. The Emerging Digital Economy, US Commerce Dept.

4 The world we live in Sixteen years after the first PC kit came out, 50 million people were using one. Once it was opened to the general public, the Internet crossed that line in four years. The Emerging Digital Economy, US Commerce Dept.

5 The world we live in Information technology has already begun to create demand for highly skilled Workers. Countries that have an insufficient supply of skilled workers will see high-skilled, high-paying jobs migrate to countries that can supply the needed talent. The Emerging Digital Economy, US Commerce Dept.

6 The world we live in The private sector and governments must work together to create new human resources policies that better prepare students and workers to meet the challenges of the emerging digital economy. The Emerging Digital Economy, US Commerce Dept.

7 How do we use technology to enhance teaching and learning? We have a duty to our students to use technology to enhance teaching and research. We have a duty to ensure that all of our students have an appropriate familiarity with the technology that is so rapidly remaking the world.

8 How do we use technology to enhance teaching and learning? By using technology to enhance teaching and learning, we improve our core function as a University, and give our students the skills they need to function effectively in the world of work.

9 Characteristics of good teaching: Instructors are well prepared. Instructors excite and motivate students Instructors communicate effectively with their students. Instructors bring latest information to students

10 Characteristics of successful learning: Students gain and retain knowledge of the content of the course. Students develop critical thinking skills. Students integrate knowledge within and across disciplines. Students develop the ability to work in a team to solve a problem.

11 Using technology to enhance education The use of modern instructional technologies enhances teaching, and learning, by promoting all of these characteristics.

12 Enhances how we teach New instructional tools: Require that instructors are well-organized and adaptable.

13 Enhances how we teach New instructional tools: Require that instructors are well organized and adaptable. Bring text, sounds and images to enrich and enliven the classroom.

16 Further enhancements More content available outside the classroom, asynchronously. classroom, asynchronously. More interaction in the classroom. Increased use of research methods in Increased use of research methods in undergraduate courses. undergraduate courses.

17 Enhancements to learning New instructional tools: Assist in the delivery of content knowledge to students. Availability of electronic data resources and the web

18 Enhancements to learning New instructional tools: Improve retention Increased interaction improves retention Empower students who find communication in traditional lecture to be intimidating.

19 Enhancements to learning New instructional tools: Improve the development of critical thinking skills. Students engage content in a mode suited to their preferred learning style.

20 Enhancements to learning New instructional tools: Improve students integration of knowledge within and across disciplines. Research projects can become part of the standard course Students can bring ideas to some stage of completion, integrating knowledge more effectively.

21 Enhancements to learning New instructional tools: Improve and encourage teamwork and problem-solving. and WWW applications enable group activities, even in large courses Conferencing and chat facilities promote discussion

22 Enhancing Education It is incumbent upon the faculties of research universities to think carefully and systematically not only about how to make the most effective use of existing technologies but also how to create new ones that will enhance their own teaching and that of their colleagues. Reinventing Undergraduate Education: A Blueprint for Americas Research Universities.

23 Enhancing Education The best teachers and researchers should be thinking about how to design courses in which technology enriches teaching rather than substitutes for it. Reinventing Undergraduate Education: A Blueprint for Americas Research Universities.

24 Enhancing Education At Rutgers, we have been doing just what the Carnegie Commission suggests. We have a number of initiatives in place that enhance and improve teaching with technology.

25 Enhancing Education Instructional Technology Initiative Year of the Network Advisory Committee on Instructional Computing Mellon Foundation Cost Effective Uses of Technology in Teaching Grant

26 Enhancing Education Instructional Technology Initiative: Funds large grants to departments or schools to transform courses or curricula Year of the Network Promotes development of new instructional technologies and diffuses them throughout the University.

27 Enhancing Education Advisory Committee on Instructional Computing Funds public use machines, networking, student access to and web, and departmental computer teaching laboratories. Mellon Foundation Cost Effective Uses of Technology in Teaching Three year grant to study cost effectiveness of Instructional Technology Initiative projects.
