Instructional Technology Leaders Chapters

These chapters are intended to be narrated presentations completed by graduate students about individuals who are considered leaders in the field of instructional technology. This project is from the Master's level introduction to instructional technology course at the University of Georgia, and many of the initial chapters that are selected come the student projects that have been completed during previous semesters. If you have a similar project in your graduate courses, consider submitting the better examples as chapters for this section.

  • Send me an email if you have a narrated presentation about a leader in the field and we will consider the addition Michael Barbour.

Michael Orey has been at the University of Georgia since 1989. Besides this wiki-based book, he is editor of two other wiki-based books. One is largely complete (Emerging Perspectives on Learning, Teaching, and Technology) and the other will take time to complete because it requires a chapter from every country in the world (The World Almanac on Educational Technology).
