The Role of Commitment to Pedagogical Quality: The Adoption of Instructional Technology in Higher Education
Baia, Patricia L.
Online Submission
This study examined the importance of faculty's commitment to pedagogical quality (CPQ) in predicting instructional technology adoption. A customized electronic survey of 27 questions was developed and implemented to four higher educational institutions and yielded 104 usable surveys. Data were analyzed with SPSS using correlation and backward stepwise regression methods. Results indicated CPQ is related to instructional technology adoption. Beliefs about instructional technology and categorical variables (academic title, years taught in higher education, and tenure status) affect both CPQ and faculty adoption of instructional technology independently. Intrinsic and extrinsic motives, and teaching in health-related courses also predict adoption. (Contains 9 tables and 4 figures.)
