Conversations About Our Scholarly Lives

12:00 PM  - 1:00 PM
Monday Mar 11, 2013
Jan Serie Center for Scholarship and Teaching (Room 338), DeWitt Wallace Library

 Fritz Vandover, ITS, will present “Why We Build it, Buy it, Bend it, and Borrow it: Understanding the Instructional Technology Landscape at Liberal Arts Institutions.” From Moodle to Blackboard, iPads to blogs, and innumerable other sites, software, and tools, instructional technology has become a ubiquitous part of the higher education pedagogical landscape.  How, though, do different institutions end up with different constellations of instructional technology tools compared to others?  Why do some institutions tend to build their instructional technologies, while others buy theirs, and still others “borrow or bend” theirs?  Please come for a discussion about these questions and many more regarding the field of instructional technology as Fritz Vandover presents the findings of his doctoral research on decision making among liberal arts institutions regarding instructional technology.  All faculty welcome.  Lunch will be provided.
