Abstract

In the corporate world, with its global, competitive environment, many firms have become learning organizations in order to survive and thrive. Similarly, 21st century universities that succeed will be lean, flexible, and nimble; Peter Drucker once asserted that in the not-so-distant future “big universities will be relics” and will not survive. This paper explains how doctoral students as well as new faculty can use the new media technologies to enhance both their research and teaching abilities.

Keywords: learning organizations, obsolescence of universities, college teaching
