Adjusting the Rearview Mirror (Thursday, May 26 - 10:45 am)
Reflecting on the past 20 years we recall astonishing innovations: technologies that piqued our interest and faded along with digital tools that became seemingly indispensable. Looking in the "rearview mirror" also provides insight on the unexpected outcomes of those advances. While we are faster than ever at finding and sampling new applications and devices, are we going to be any better at anticipating the effects on our personal and professional lives in the next two decades? Will we manage adoption of new technologies differently? How will we respond to the "tensions" technology can introduce such as multiple access points to online resources that have equal potential to inform and distract?
What impact will these trends have in shaping roles and relationships among faculty, students and IT professionals? Developing effective physical and virtual learning environments will depend on balancing awareness of new technologies with greater understanding of the implications as we head inevitably toward the next horizon.
