What Makes an Effective Virtual Learning Experience for Promoting Faculty Use of Technology?
Gibson, Susan; Peacock, Kim
Journal of Distance Education, v21 n1 p62-74 2006
The main objective of this project was to provide a Web-based tool that included practical resources for faculty in education at one Canadian university who were seeking ways to make effective use of learning technologies to enhance learning environments. The site includes online tools and resources and integrates ideas from people in the faculty and other education institutions about various ways to enhance teaching and learning through the use of technology. A study using the think-aloud strategy investigated the views of four faculty members about the effectiveness of the site for their own professional development. (Contains 1 table.)
