Approaches to Technology in Australia

    * Introduction:

Vocational Imperative vs. Responsible Education transfer of "just-in-time knowledge" versus a broad education

How do we stretch a vision between the Futurist narratives of progress with all their techno-optimism and the technophobia often encountered in more traditional cultural theorists? What can we do about anti-intellectualism and boredom in the undergraduate classroom? Concrete examples of useful assignments and ways in which to teach theory or tech (ie. How could the role plays proposed by Augusto Boal's "Games for Actors and Non-actors" be applied to the teaching theatre?)
