“The future of the university is not an either-or with regard to technologies definitions, but a relationship between them. The use of technology helps us comprehend most fully what we are, not because technology defines the human, but because the human must define technology. Our pursuits in understanding the human being most fully will enable us to determine how we want technology as a tool to function at our university. This is the blend I predict Emory will seek in the coming decades: an appreciation of technology not simply because of its instrumental value, but for what it discloses about us as human beings, an appreciation that will enable Emory to praise technology, but not worship it, and in so doing allow Emory to embody its highest goals.”
The Tech-niques blog is published by Emory Report to spotlight innovative uses of technology for teaching and faculty development.
