The impact of new and emerging technologies is described in chapter 6.11 including the escalating though differing types of professional learning opportunities needed by educational developers and consultants, by administrators and staff personnel, by faculty members and often by students. Professional learning opportunities are increasingly being offered through online and social media, both for access purposes and to informally teach the use of these e-learning technologies. Chapter 6.11 concludes with a discussion of the ways in which online learning opportunities, among these OER and Open Textbooks, may re-shape teaching and learning environments.
