November 11, 2016   |   Uncategorised


Recently published, Dr. Moodie’s ‘Universities, Disruptive Technologies and Continuity in Higher Education’ book traces the significant shifts in university pedagogy, influenced by the advent and evolution of information technologies in universities. Through a historical approach, he identifies changes in universities’ students, libraries, curriculum, pedagogy, lectures, assessment, research, and the dissemination of these changes across the globe. His book provides insight on the effects of the current information revolution on universities, by placing a historical context through a critical examination of the effects of two previous information revolutions: Gutenberg’s invention and proof of printing in 1450 and the Scientific Revolution from the mid- fifteenth to the end of the seventeenth century.
