@ONE Summary Report, 2000: Faculty Instructional Technology Survey Results.
De Anza Coll., Cupertino, CA.
Summarizes the results of the recent statewide @ONE Instructional Technology Survey of full- and part-time faculty at California Community Colleges and highlights policy implications based on the data collected. The @ONE project is funded by the Chancellor's office to enhance instruction and services through expanded uses of technology. Results suggest that faculty continue to 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. Faculty use of technology is increasing in a number of areas, especially in the use of the Internet and email. Skills are improving, but data still indicate a need for ongoing training in uses of technology that reflect best practice. Almost half of the responding faculty reported that their departments do not have an adequate budget to purchase needed software. The changing workload of faculty, new roles necessary to support technology mediated instruction, and sufficient infrastructure must be addressed before the California Community Colleges and their students will reap the benefits of technological advances. The survey results point to local training as being most desirable and effective. Strategies to reach and support part-time faculty must be a priority. There must be comprehensive, ongoing funding for technology in the colleges. Appendices include the survey instrument used in this study. (VWC)
