Computer Competencies of the Faculty Members of the College of Education at the United Arab Emirates University
Alghazo, Iman Mohammad
International Journal of Instructional Media, v33 n3 p327-335 2006
In its effort to obtain accreditation using NCATE standards, the College of Education at the United Arab Emirates University is integrating ISTE standards into its teacher education programs. The main challenge at this stage is preparing faculty members to integrate technology into their teaching in order to help their students meet ISTE standards. This can only happen if a well-structured professional development program is established. This study aimed at determining the technological competencies of faculty members, their preferences of professional development options, and their attitudes toward computers. Four researcher-designed surveys were used. The results revealed that the faculty members lacked many technological competencies; they had different preferences formats; and they had positive attitudes toward computers. (Contains 4 charts.)
