Technology Professionals

For several years, I have been trying to study the professionals within our information-centric fields, including information systems and educational technology. I have studied the professional associations within the field of information systems, and I have studied the competencies of professionals within the field of educational technology. My hope is that this research will assist academic programs, professionals, and professional associations in forming the identity of our professionals.
