CowboyRobot writes "The January edition of Science, Technology & Human Values published an article titled, Technological Change and Professional Control in the Professoriate that details interviews with 42 faculty members at three research-intensive universities. The research concludes that faculty have little interest in the latest IT "solutions". "I went to [a course management software workshop] and came away with the idea that the greatest thing you could do with that is put your syllabus on the Web and that's an awful lot of technology to hand the students a piece of paper at the start of the semester and say keep track of it," said one. "What are the gains for students by bringing IT into the class? There isn't any. You could teach all of chemistry with a whiteboard. I really don't think you need IT or anything beyond a pencil and a paper," said another."
