Dear colleagues,

we invite you to submit your paper proposals to our panel for
the International Political Science Association (IPSA) World Congress. *LAST
DEADLINE for paper proposals:  17 October 2011*


*"Technology and Higher Education: The Role of the Internet" *

RC11: Science and Politics

*Chair*:  Mauro Calise (University of Naples Federico II, IPSA Portal

*Co-Chair*: Derrick Cogburn (American University, COTELCO)

*Discussants*:  Michael Brintnall  (APSA Executive Director)

*The modern information and communication technologies promise to improve
the quality, flexibility and effectiveness of higher education. Students are
more and more computer and IT literate and, for their part, universities are
realizing that the new technologies are one of the most important
springboards for innovation.
The introduction of new technologies into
teaching is progressing along similar lines to those seen in other fields
some years before. One example is that of libraries and the way they
organize the output of the knowledge industry. The progressive integration
of new multi-media technologies with teaching methodologies is creating an
environment of virtual knowledge-sharing through the interconnection of
learning and teaching spaces.
Following these considerations, this panel
looks into the new methodologies and new tools used to study and research
online, it investigates how computers and the Web can be used to improve
student learning and skills development, how the Internet can enhance
traditional teaching and learning methods, how scientists design and
implement the innovations, looks at experiences and innovative projects in
the universities, and more generally at the cutting-edge approaches and
techniques that can be applied in social sciences.
Case studies,
applications of new methodologies and tools are welcome.*
