Pressing Questions…

  • How does TSL add real value for learners, faculty, and institutions?

  • How should universities proceed in both strategy and practice?


4 Visions for Technology

(Zuboff, 1984; Leidner & Jarvenppa, 1995)

  • Vision to Automate

  • Vision to Informate Down

  • Vision to Informate Up

  • Vision to Transform

Real Course Examples from Each Vision

Implemented in MBA/Exec Ed Programs


TSL Journey for Universities

Diffusion

TSL in

Action

Vision for

Learning in

the Network Era


My Teaching Team

The efforts of these faculty have made this work possible.


Vision to Automate

  • Judicious use can make sense

    • Example: IS On-Line Competency Exam


Vision to Informate Down

  • Pedagogy based on transmission of knowledge

    • Web sites with slides, lecture notes, etc.

    • Example: Oak/Elm Class Forum

    • Example: Executive Education & LearningSpace


Vision to Informate Up

  • Instructor can see into the minds of students and tailor instruction

    • Example: Pre-class On-line Voting for Cases

    • Example: Integrated Consulting Project


Vision to Transform

  • Fundamentally alter the rules that have defined knowledge construction for learners

  • Pedagogical focus is Cooperative, Collaborative, Constructive

    • Example: Electronic Commerce Course

    • Example: Cooperative Learning


Transforming Faculty Planning

  • Creating an electronic market for teaching topics, scheduling, planning

  • Organizational Memory across years

  • Integrated syllabus production is a by-product of the planning process

    • Example: MBA Core Planning System (CORPSe)


Transforming Exec. Education

  • Creating interorganizational electronic linkages between companies and b-schools

  • Providing on-line technology process structuring for strategic planning

  • Providing (near) real-time faculty guidance for Virtual Teams

    • Example: Virtual Strategic Planning Tool

    • Example: Course Containers - LearningSpace


Pressing Questions…

  • How does TSL add real value for learners, faculty, and institutions?

  • How should universities proceed in both strategy and practice?


Strategy for the Network Era?

  • Choosing target markets

    • Leverage the brand and existing capabilities

    • Co-branding via educational consortia

    • Build electronic relationships w/customers, partners

  • Recognizing TSL as an org. change initiative

    • Create capacity for innovation

    • Establish a technology strategy

    • Plan to access economies of scale in knowledge, faculty skills, technology


The Tough Issues...

  • Steering faculty involvement

    • Incenting the hard work of TSL startup

    • Directing that energy towards school initiatives

    • Scaling successes across programs

  • Funding and steering a technology plan

    • Stable, reliable, familiar

    • Dynamic, adaptive, innovative


How to Start? Scale Up?

  • Consider Which Vision(s) is(are) the Objective

  • Choose Enabling Technologies

    • Make -- design, code, maintain yourself

    • Buy -- adapt to tools’ features/quirks

  • Implement

    • Train, educate, reinforce, support


Implementation Strategies

  • Top Down - Planned Growth

    • Slower

    • Hard work to Engage Faculty

  • Bottom Up - Organic Growth

    • Messy

    • Build from Success to Success
