Is technology pushing the liberal arts more toward vocationalism?

Throughout the past week, through the readings, photo essay, and meeting in the Innovation Lab, I have thought about the effects technology is having on Oxy and the liberal arts in general. Looking at Oxy, I see that innovations like the McKinnon Center for Global Affairs are taking the traditional liberal arts and bringing into the modern digital era. Through the readings, I have noticed that higher education is on a trend moving more towards vocationalism, and from previous knowledge I know that technology has been a means of accessing a vocation education online.
