Welcome to EDUC 540. While many of you are quite familiar with computers and other technologies (CD-ROMs, DVD players, VHS recorders, camcorders, digital cameras, etc.), this course will challenge you to consider how these tools (and others) may be used to enhance learning, teaching, and instructional administration and management. Ideas will be drawn from a variety of areas, including instructional design and development, educational psychology, human-computer interaction, instructional media development, and more. The best way to learn about instructional technologies is to actually work with them, and there will be many opportunities for hands-on, minds-on learning. Since technology is a constantly changing field, this course should be considered a beginning of a lifelong study of technology. Hang on! There is a lot to this class, and it will move pretty quickly.
