The Interpersonal Computing and Technology List (IPCT-L) was
created February 1992 by the Center for Teaching and Technology (CTT)
at the Academic Computer Center, Georgetown University. A special
effort will be made to promote an international forum for
pedagogical issues important to higher education involving
teaching with technology, and especially with connectivity and

A goal is to create a forum for the discussion of computing and
other technology that can be used to promote learning. Topics for
discussion may involve teaching and training; collaboration;
partnerships among learners, faculty or teachers, and other
interested persons in the educational community; and research that
reflect these interests. The decade of the 1980s was characterized
by the _personal_ computer, and development of individual product-
ivity. The focus of the IPCT-L, as we move toward the 21st century,
is that _interpersonal_ computing and technology will tie persons
together throughout the world -- to share ideas and solve problems.

Besides creating a forum for the topics of interest noted above,
another interest of the CTT is to publish a scholarly, refereed
international journal. To that end, the IPCT-L will develop a
subscription list and act as a resource to develop the community
necessary to review articles and recommend editorial policies as
these publishing goals move forward.
