@ONE Summary Report: Faculty Instructional Technology Needs Assessment and Survey Results.
California Community Colleges, Sacramento. Office of the Chancellor.
This report presents the findings and recommendations from a survey conducted by the @ONE project, which is funded by the California Community Colleges' Chancellor's Office to enhance instruction and services through expanded uses of technology in the colleges. In order for California Community Colleges to be successful in instituting change regarding instructional technology, there must be a receptive faculty attitude, appropriate skills and knowledge, and sufficient institutional support that address obstacles to the effectiveness of these technologies. The @ONE Instructional Technology Survey findings indicate that faculty have positive attitudes regarding the potential for technology to improve instruction and that they are interested in learning how to use technology to reach instructional goals that benefit students. Findings support an investment in new training methods, utilizing existing structures such as flex days for training, and a need for discipline specific technology mentors. Findings also indicate that there are support issues within the colleges that must be addressed in order for an investment in faculty training and development to pay off. Recommends changes to the state budget so that colleges can provide ongoing technical and pedagogical support for integrating technology into instruction and services; improvement of student and faculty access to technology; continuous evaluation of the effectiveness of TMI to increase student access, learning, and achievement of desired outcomes in a cost-effective manner; and strategies for shared development through collaborative teams of faculty from colleges in the system, with resulting products made available to the system. Includes survey instrument in appendices. (VWC)
