    Abstract

    Public relations education is facing a fundamental challenge to its theoretical and pedagogical directions. Unless educators respond to the changes that technology is bringing to the communities they serve, the academy faces the prospect of becoming irrelevant by not providing students with the skills and knowledge required by the marketplace. A strategic view, therefore, needsto be taken of future practitioner, client, and student needs. This article discusses the impact of technology on public relations practice,reviews the specific literature of curriculum development in the Asia Pacific region, and offers some perspectives on future directions for strategic public relations curriculum planning.
