Over the last 10 years, information technology has been the fastest growing sector in the global economy. Nevertheless, technology and computer-based instruction have not been sufficiently integrated into the curriculum especially at institutions that serve primarily language minority, low income, and first generation, female college populations. Through student surveys and faculty interviews, this study examined how faculty and students in such an institution evaluated the effects of integrating various technologies on their classroom experiences. Through a federally funded Title V grant, faculty participated in professional development workshops aimed at developing their ability to use technologically mediated practices to enhance learning opportunities through interaction and communication in cyberspace as well as face-to-face interaction. Faculty members from various disciplines participated in hands-on workshops on the use of various technologies such as Blackboard, power-point, and general internet and email uses.
