Open Access Graduate Research Paper


Presenters who are responsible for delivering this message are concerned with how best to communicate it in an effective way. They make choices concerning the needs of today's learners who have grown up in a technologically advanced society where constant change necessitates a greater need for training and development and where a multitude of professional organizations are providing their constituents with the most updated information in their field. According to Koenig {1982), "the continuing changes in our world require continuing re-education, re-tooling of human resources, and the effective use of communication and technology in education and training" (p. 1). 2 Because of their exposure to mass media, today's audience "learns" differently than previous generations and there seems to be no question that modern communications technology should be brought into their learning situation. How can conference centers provide better services in preparing for the needs of presenters? Accustomed to traditional technologies, how do media providers plan for the future and emerging technologies? What are they and what are their implications for use?
