Because new technologies and techniques continually emerge in education methodology in teaching and facilitating learning are ever changing. Consequently, faculty members from Appalachian State University will facilitate a dialogue that focuses on issues directly related to the use of technology in distance education. They will include in the discussion topics such as negotiating policy mandates, current research on distance education, and meeting student learner needs. In this roundtable format, presenters will highlight issues involved with faculty decisions and present an outline for determining the use of technological tools to meet the multiple demands from students, administrators, colleagues, and other participants in the learning process. The dialogue will also include concerns for maintaining sound instructional practices while varying delivery modes.
