Costing and Financing Instructional Technologies
in Higher Education:
Practical Lessons and Policy Implications
Herndon, Virginia May 14-15, 2002.
We are pleased to invite you to participate in a timely conference entitled
"Costing and Financing Instructional Technologies in Higher Education:
Practical Lessons and Policy Implications." This conference, a unique effort that joins two projects on costing
and finance-WCET's Technology Costing Methodology Project and the Finance
Issues Committee of Southern Regional Education Board's Distance Learning
Policy Laboratory-will be held near Dulles International Airport in Herndon,
Virginia May 14-15, 2002.
Topics will include:
- Tuition, fees, and other ways to make money.
- Funding educational technologies and models used by states and institutions.
- Lessons e-learning can take from e-commerce.
- Policies in an era of unbundled faculty roles.
- State and institutional roles in technology and student support infrastructures.
- Why are we doing this? Does
attention to technology truly fit the educational mission?
- What policies hobble innovation?
What competitive disadvantages exist for public institutions due to
laws or regulations?
- Given the findings of the two projects, the conference will explore
the policy changes to enable education to be improved through technology.
