      NITLE/Wesleyan Report on Digital Images Released Oct. 31


      October 31, 2006. Digital images are changing the way professors
      teach at colleges and universities--although often at great personal
      expense of time and resources, according to a new study by David
      Green.

      "Using Digital Images in Teaching and Learning: Perspectives from
      Liberal Arts Institutions," published today, details the results of
      an intensive study of digital image use by more than 400 faculty at
      33 liberal arts colleges and universities in the Northeast.

      Commissioned by Wesleyan University and the National Institute for
      Technology and Liberal Education (NITLE), the study focuses on the
      pedagogical implications of the widespread use of digital formats.
      But, while changes in teaching and learning were at the core of the
      study, related issues concerning supply, support and infrastructure
      rapidly became part of its fabric.

      The report suggests how the teaching profession as a whole can better
      harness these new resources, and it makes recommendations for
      optimizing their deployment on campus.


      The full report and an executive summary are available at Academic
      Commons, an online forum for new technologies and liberal education:
