ABSTRACT Actualmente, la computadora desempeña un papel preponderante en la educación y en la investigación y ya se perciben sus implicaciones futuras y sus ventajas como herramienta en el proceso de enseñanza-aprendizaje. En el caso particular de la Maestría en Desarrollo Humano de la Universidad Veracruzana, se incursiona en uno de sus cursos en el recurso metodológico de un programa computacional; por ende, los docentes de esta maestría han podido combinar los aspectos de desarrollo personal con las habilidades de tipo técnico. Para contribuir a este cam-bio de paradigma, que demanda sistemas educativos más flexibles y accesibles a los que puedan incorporarse los estudiantes, se diseñan y promueven experiencias innovadoras en los procesos de enseñanza-aprendizaje apoyados en las nuevas tecnologías, con el propósito de diversificar los ambientes de promoción del apren-dizaje significativo de los estudiantes.

    ABSTRACT: Technology advancement is shifting our education paradigm. The role of the instructor is changing from an information-giver to a facilitator. Students no longer passively receive information but may become instructional resources in class. Given opportunities, they may be self-learners and self-trainers. In a multimedia course, the instructor employed teaching methods allowing her to be a facilitator and her students to be self-learners. It was discovered that the course motivated students; fostered active, meaningful, and constructive learning; enhanced critical thinking skills; and increased students’ confidence. Class observations, interviews, and student feedback revealed that the new teaching methods and new role of the instructor had a positive impact on student learning. As a university professor in Instructional Technology, the author might have experienced the education paradigm shift and its impact on the role of an instructor earlier or faster than instructors of other subject areas might. However, the new paradigm is expected to spread widely in education. As NCATE stated in 1997, teachers need to develop a new understanding, new attitude, new approach, and new role. Every instructor should be open to the changes and explore the possibility of creating a learning community in which instructors, students, and community members may contribute, benefit, and generate meaningful learning experiences. One can only look forward to participating in the dynamic learning and expect its positive impact on our society.

    ABSTRACT: Demonstrates how Web-based bulletin boards can facilitate learning and dialogue based on a case study of graduate education students in face-to-face classes. Analyzes bulletin board postings, electronic journals, reflective essays, class discussions, and interviews from an adult learning perspective to reveal how these online experiences can influence the face-to-face classroom.
