The purpose of this article is first to elaborate on the premise that technology is merely the metaphor for more significant changes that we are undergoing; second, to suggest ways to involve faculty as learners in the process of understanding those changes; and, third, to explore how they might capitalize on the information age technology in order to transform learning and thus the role of the faculty itself in the process. There is no more important role for the university in the information age.
