From the Classroom to the Web: A Study of Faculty Change.
Kincannon, Joyce M.
This research is an instrumental case study, describing the experience of university faculty as they redesign face-to-face classroom instruction for a Web-based environment. Participants were faculty from one department at a major level-one research institution in the Southeast United States. Five faculty were selected to represent a range of experience with any type of distance education, a diversity of teaching styles, and a variety of attitudes toward distance education. Other sources included administrators and staff associated with the Web development effort. Data collection, using interviews, a document review, class observations, and a focus group, was carried out during a two-semester time frame. The findings document the effects of using Web-based technology on: faculty perception of their teaching roles; their own personal satisfaction from the teaching experience; their workplace context; and their actual teaching practice. The implications for instructional design support are presented. (Contains 64 references.) (AEF)
