Incorporating Technology in Communication Instruction: A Faculty Profile of Dr. Jack Johnson, UW-Milwaukee
by Jennifer Smith, TTT Editor

As Professor Jack Johnson states, "Technology is not something a college graduate of this century is going to be able to avoid." In keeping with this prediction, Johnson has incorporated numerous technological elements into his class on business and professional communication. Students learn interpersonal and presentation skills while gaining greater familiarity with technologies they will encounter when entering the workplace. Incorporating tech elements has also helped Prof. Johnson serve UW Colleges students taking his course. (Dec. 2000)

The Teaching with Technology Today project consists of a web-based NEWSLETTER and WISLRNTEC, a companion listserv where members discuss technology, pedagogy, and student learning. TTT was instigated by the UW Learning Technology Development Council; it receives significant support from UW-Extension's Division of Continuing Education.
