This chapter introduces the issues, implications, and cultural upheavals posed for the staff in higher education by the advance of technology. It does so from the standpoint of someone who has been an innovative and researching university teacher, but who is now retired and mainly serves as a grassroots teacher. It summarises the challenges he has encountered recently, and concludes with some questions which he hopes will feature in much imminent and needed action research.
