How technology is changing learning at Duke

A recent Cisco-produced video includes several short interviews with Duke administrators, faculty and students as they discuss how learning is changing at Duke.

Tracy Futhey, CIO and Vice President for Information Technology, Duke University says:

Increasingly, what we are finding are courses are that are experimenting in the way the information is delivered outside of class and then a change in dynamic of what’s occurring in the classroom.

Peter Lange, Provost, Duke University, stated:

So you make the classroom the place where those questions get really engaged, and you get the fact-based material taught elsewhere.

Tony O’Driscoll, Professor of the Practice, Business Administration, points out:

The context within which younger people learn is being very much more driven by access to information, they’ve got a richer source of access and secondly is how they actually collaborate to make meaning together.
