Trident University Faculty: Dr. Wendy Wang, College of Information Systems
[MUSIC] My name is Wendy Wang, I’m a faculty member for the College of Business and Information Management. I’ve been with Trident since the end of 2009. So the research that I present today is more like a teaser chapter or opening chapter for a book which published last year by IGI Global Publication.
And this chapter I would say that the main purpose of this chapter is to help us or prompt us to think and how we work, and why we work the way we work. This is the starting of separation of residence in the workplace. This is kinda work mode we are familiar with. The reason is because why is it happening at this period of time, because the work is highly specialized.
You don’t do things from one end to to the other one. So there were people doing segment work moving through the post industrial period where there was society becoming increasingly knowledge intensive, so the number of knowledge workers increased tremendously. Who are these people? These people they no longer work for iron or work for cloth, they work for ideas, they work with abstract, concepts, knowledge.
They’re gonna have a renascence of manufacturing in our foreseeable future. The reason I say this is because the technology like 3D printing make it possible. I think the Internet and IT technology gave us a tremendous opportunity and Trident is an online University. I believe online education is the direction of where we’re going, and I already think many traditional school or online education work mode, I consider Trident is more like pioneer in this field.
