Villar, Luis M.; Alegre, Olga M.
ALT-J: Research in Learning Technology, v15 n3 p217-230 Sep 2007
This article evaluates the role of the Online Faculty Development and Assessment System (OFDAS), created at universities in the Canary Islands, Spain, in staff development. The evaluation indicates that the system helped staff in learning to teach curriculum and teaching capacities. The tasks, online resources and opportunities for discussions provided within the learning environment created for the system helped shape their attitudes towards learning curriculum and teaching capacities and enabled them to share their concerns about students' classroom learning environment assessment. (Contains 3 tables and 3 figures.)
