Harnessing Technological Change to Serve a Changing Student Demography: Strategies for Integrating Asynchronous Teaching and Learning Approaches. Videoconference #5; IT also Takes Money: Securing the Resource Base for Technology-Based Innovation


Technological innovation is supported by both internal and external funding. Presenting a workable plan to those who oversee institutional budgets is critical. To do so, one must understand some essential cost/benefit equations relevant to online instruction. Also important is identifying external sources and writing effective proposals that secure funding. This video conference will look at several ways to attain the resources needed to achieve sustainability and the institutionalization of effective programs.

Between November 2001 and April 2002, AN-MSI sponsored a series of six two-hour interactive videoconferences dealing with online instruction and the changing technology that supports the new culture of asynchronous teaching and learning. The series facilitated the dialogue and planning that is needed to move MSIs toward more effective use of innovative networking and telecommunications technology for distance-developed instruction. The series emphasizes the broad set of changes that are needed to launch successful online instruction that responds to the needs of a changing and culturally diverse student demography.
