Enhancing and Leveraging Technology

As society continues its transition to an information-based economy, 21st century workers will require even more skill in the use of information technologies and the success of organizations will depend, in part, on their ability to leverage both information and technologies. Information technologies have limited inherent value; their real value is based on the effectiveness of their application.

Nowhere is this more true than in the classroom and laboratories. The university's technology infrastructure must keep pace with the current students' technology IQ and expectations by means of course redesign, a wider range of electronic delivery systems and best practice pedagogy.
