Alfonso, Jeunice Arvee S. BSED-3 No. 10 Understanding our Evolving Role 1.

What role will academic technologists play in accountability efforts? To meet these new demands for accountability and usability, the role and skills of academic technologists must evolve. And this role would mean that academic technologists are expected to act as an expert resource on best practices in educational technology. 2.
