Engaging or Enraging? Sharing Learning Objects
Learning objects are the buzz in instructional technology and library circles. Yet within the ranks of the faculty and the traditional educational professional organizations, learning objects are barely a blip on the radar screen. If we are going to effect change, we must engage our learners, but not enrage our faculty by coercing them into using an ill-conceived technological and pedagogical model. Metros will provide a framework to begin meaningful discussion on what learning objects are, how they can advance learning, and how instructional technology professionals, alongside educators, can lead a cultural shift that might just transform education.
