Abstract

The objective of this paper is to address the question of the changing
conception of knowledge at present and the need for institutions of higher learning and
educators to reconceptualize the notion of knowledge and learning in order to keep in
line with the changes in the society. Furthermore, I will argue that it is necessary to
develop teaching methodology that can function effectively in the new technologicallygrounded
paradigm that is evolving in the realm of the social and the economical on a
global scale today. This paper is based on my experience in developing, designing and
delivering a web-based Spanish Civilization course at the University of Arizona,
Tucson.
