Hello and welcome! Frequent references appear in the popular and academic press about the "Computer Revolution" and the "Information Super Highway". Indeed the rapid development of information technology has profound effects on academic culture which can be viewed from two perspectives. On the one hand, information technologies provide us with great capabilities to integrate different forms of information including graphics and multimedia, provide access to various types of informational databases, etc. and bring disciplines together in new and exciting ways. At the same time the prevailing information-laden culture requires us to use more technology and to become fluent in its applications.

The implications of both of these perspectives should concern us. Hopefully this web site will be a resource to help you along this journey. I look forward to sharing my work with the university with others and hearing your ideas. Please feel free to use the comments form or send me e-mail at
