History
or
How I Learned More About Technology Than I Ever Intended


If anyone had told me 25 years ago that in 2001 I would run three servers, I would have asked why I had entered the restaurant business. Or, if someone had told me that I could communicate around the world in seconds and publish my work just as easily, I would have not believed them. But that is exactly what has happened. Technology has gradually and inexorably permeated all facets of life including teaching. In the minutes that follow, I would like to share my experiences regarding how teaching, students, and faculty have changed (or not!). I will also venture a few predictions about what the next 25 years will bring.

The Distant Past (1976-1990)

The Near Past (1991-1996)

The Recent Past (1997-2001)
