Strategically Implementing New Media: Just Say Yes!


In 1993 California State University, Long Beach, embarked on a project to learn to use new media effectively for learning and teaching. The project started with a few computers in a small room and has grown into a 20,000-square foot facility and over one hundred faculty involved in developing new media instructional objects. Academic Computing Services had to develop new strategies to support the faculty who were willing to make a commitment to develop new media. New learning paradigms emerged and new strategic partnerships within the university and with the private sector were developed. Through the joint efforts of the Center for Faculty Development and Academic Computing Services, a group of faculty, staff and administrators developed a set of strategies that use new media to support a learner-centered, project-based paradigm.
