Education Technology, Learning Paradigms and Systemic Change: Preparing Faculty for the Future of Education
Education in 2013 has changed from what it was 2 decades ago. There is a paradigm shift that is absolutely systemic in the way all aspects of education are being implemented. The pivotal force in the change is technology. It is very dynamic; as recent history suggests, a transformation to technology based education is changing how students learn. In less than two decades, learners and instructors are faced with varied options to meet their needs (Open Online Education, Blended Learning, Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs)). The implication is that faculty everywhere should be sensitized about the fluidity technology has invoked on the education process. Instructors have a vital role in transferring knowledge to their learners; they must, however, understand their role in the whole process of change as implement the transformation in the classroom. // Paper ID: 411
