Educational Technologies in a Challenging Economy

On January 21st, as part of our fifth annual Passport to Technology event, we held a national teleconference on the economic impact of technology in education. I moderated the multipoint teleconference which included a distinguished panel of Frye Fellows from 2005: Dr. Sharon E. Blanton, CIO Office of Information Technologies Portland State University; Gardner Campbell, Ph.D., Director of the Academy for Teaching and Learning at Baylor University and Assoc. Prof. of Literature and Media, Honors College; Helen Chu, Director, Academic Technology, University of Oregon; Rick Holmgren, Ph.D., Executive Director, Learning, Information, and Technology Services, Allegany College; William Mayer, Librarian, American University, Washington, D.C.; Jenny Mehmedovic, Assistant to the Provost, University of Kansas.

Each panelist responded to a wide variety of important questions facing faculty, administrators, and students. To learn more about this program, you may connect to a webcast of the event by clicking on the Passport logo.
