Understanding Faculty Adoption of Technology Using the Learning/Adoption Trajectory Model: A Qualitative Case Study
Sahin, Ismail
Turkish Online Journal of Educational Technology - TOJET, v4 n1 Article 10 p75-84 Jan 2005
Using a technology adoption model, the Learning/Adoption Trajectory model, and this study aimed to identify the technology adoption level of a faculty member, Mary. In addition, I examined how Mary arrived at her technology adoption level. Finally, using Mary's path to technology leadership as a guide, I offered several recommendations about how colleges and departments can encourage faculty members to integrate technology effectively. To be able to get enough data and to strengthen the internal validity and the reliability of this qualitative case study, the triangulation strategy or the multiple data collection method was used. In this basic interpretive qualitative study, the data were collected through interviews, classroom observations, and document analysis.
