Integrating Liberal Learning Principles into the Information Technology Classroom

While much has been published about integrating technology into liberal arts courses and the benefits of doing so, little has been written about integrating liberal learning principles into technology-based courses.  The authors examine one introductory technology course at a New England business college and describe some of the assignments and subject matter that empower students to apply their knowledge of technology in contexts that transcend the technology domain.  The authors share classroom practices, assignments, and student feedback to show how students develop an understanding of how to apply technology to new forms of creative expression. By encouraging students to lead technology-enabled lives, faculty can simultaneously encourage students to espouse the very essence of what it means to be life-long liberal learners.
