The emergence of online course software such as BlackBoard, Prometheus, and Web-CT has made it relatively easy for faculty to add a web-based component to their traditional classroom courses and it has fostered the evolution of new pedagogical strategies and formats including web-enhanced, hybrid, and completely asynchronous instruction. As a result it is likely that faculty are investing significant time to develop materials and modify pedagogy so that it is appropriate for and compatible with these new instructional modalities. Therefore in important ways the demands on contemporary college faculty are changing and along with these changes have come new roles with very different expectations. This paper investigates the impact of these changes and explores faculty perceptions of how the work of the professoriate is evolving in an age of rapid technological change.
