ocotillo's evolution...

Ocotillo Evolution 1987-2023
As a metaphor for learning in the landscape of technology Ocotillo has and continues to evolve with the changing climate of teaching and learning. The evolution of different committees since 1988 demonstrates how the agenda has changed from pure use of technology to addressing broader issues and a wider range of faculty. The 1996-1997 change from topical committees to college based roundtables shows how Ocotillo grew to be more central to instructional technology at the Maricopa Colleges.
