Higher Education Administrators' Perceptions of the Use of Simulation Games for Adult Learners

ProQuest LLC, Ed.D. Dissertation, Argosy University/San Francisco Bay Area
Many university administrators are unaware of the increasing use of computer technologies for educating employees. This study explored higher education administrators' perceptions of computer technology for university administrator learning. A treatment group of UC Berkeley administrative employees was assigned to use an online simulation; a control group was not. Perceptions in both were assessed with three survey instruments: COLLES, WEBLEI, and TAM. Mean scores of the treatment and control groups were compared with a t-test; no significant differences were found except in two WEBLEI item-level questions. Future research should include formal interviews, consistency in testing locations, use of a testing moderator, and a larger sample size encompassing a greater geographical range and various types of higher education institutions.
