Implementing Technology Integration at the University Level: A Case Study of Changes in Faculty Behaviors and Attitudes.
Nelson, Tobye Rae; Snider, Sharla L.; Gershner, Vera T.
This paper details a local experience relating to a technology integration project designed to support the ongoing refinement of faculty technology skills within the context of the teaching and learning situation. The Learning and Integrating Knowledge and Skills (LINKS) project is a 3-year technology project designed to integrate established and emerging technologies into the teacher preparation curriculum at the Texas Woman's University (TWU) and is supported by a U.S. Department of Education, Preparing Tomorrow's Teachers to Use Technology (PT 3) implementation grant. The LINKS program supports both changes in university faculty roles and changes in curriculum content and delivery. This paper addresses two primary questions: (1) how were the development of faculty technology proficiencies supported and (2) what was the progress of the participating faculty in infusion of technology in university Web-based course delivery? To address these questions, second year findings regarding the examination of changes in faculty attitudes and behaviors and the effectiveness of the implemented LINKS project are provided. (AEF)
