Abstract

Governments, industry and the public are urging post-secondary education to adopt computers and new communication technologies to reform teaching processes. In recent years there has been an increasing interest in technological solutions to problems associated with teaching and learning in post-secondary education. This is exemplified by the successful applications of the first three rounds of the Committee for the Advancement of University Teaching's (CAUT) National Teaching Development Projects. A few innovators in universities and TAFE colleges are advancing this cause, especially those involved in non-conventional forms of delivery such as open and distance education. This paper introduces an ARC project which analyses such reforms, and their proponents and opponents, in two post-secondary institutions with a view to informing future policy and practice. The paper outlines the aims and background of the project and discusses some of the preliminary findings of the project.
