In #101 we explore how administrators at Pepperdine University, the
University of Northern Iowa, Somona State University and California
University became catalysts for change on their campuses. We also hear
their thoughts on the critical success factors necessary to implement a
vision of reform.
In #102 we focus on how administrators can build a culture of technology
their institutions by providing faculty hardware, software, fast
connectivity, support and just in time training. Administrators from
University of Virginia and the University of Northern Colorado join in
discussion. We also hear from faculty in the trenches that have learned
to handle the ambiguity of ever changing technology.
In #103 we hear how Retention, Tenure, Promotion Committees struggle
how to judge faculty in this digital age. Deans of Education explain
various incentives they have developed to help faculty incorporate
technology into the classes they teach. We also begin our look at the
mission of colleges of education to partner with local schools.
In #104 we discuss the expectation that our teachers will be able to
children in very diverse classrooms where technology is just part of the
learning. We visit Socorro Sanchez's Kindergarten class at Central
in Escondido California. We see how this very well prepared first year
teacher moves from theory to practice and hear how this school district
works with their local university to provide technology courses for
teachers at their school site.
