Framing Professional Development in Information and Communications Technologies: University Perspectives
Muwanga-Zake, Johnnie Wycliffe Frank
Journal of Information Technology Education, v7 p285-298 2008
The proliferations of Information and Communications Technology (ICT) and an increase in the number of external students and of the digital youth have put considerable pressure upon university staff to adopt ICT in their pedagogy. However, these challenges that include ICT technical skills and pedagogy require staff to continuously engage in Professional Development (PD), which might require revisions of work agreements. Staff have to change their pedagogical paradigms. This paper proposes PD models and suggests that IT specialists and Administrative Assistants should be involved. (Contains 5 figures and 3 tables.)
