Abstract

Colleges and universities are facing many challenges today, such as changing student demographics, a global economy, rising costs, overcrowding, faculty shortages, increased accountability, and the new digital technologies. One of the key challenges is in the redesign of traditionally taught courses to both improve the pedagogical approach and increase the flexibility of delivering courses using technology. One of the lessons learned in successful e-learning initiatives at Trinity College, the University of Dublin is that a holistic, pedagogically led approach to enhancing learning with digital technologies is required. The technology should focus on improving the overall quality, broadening access, and widening student engagement. This paper presents a case study of the transition from a traditional undergraduate Geography course at Trinity College to adopting innovative e-learning solutions and an innovative WebQuest instructional model.
