Developing Contextualized Faculty Training: Faculty Development to Support University-Wide Digital Portfolio Initiatives
Britten, Jody S.; Craig, Penny
College Quarterly, v9 n2 Spr 2006
The necessity of faculty members to hold specific skills and abilities with regard to technology has reached our institutions of higher education. Locally, a digital portfolio initiative recently implemented by our institution in teacher education has produced an unprecedented expectation for faculty technology skill, as well as conceptual understanding of the digital portfolio model. This article strives to further our understanding of how contextualized technology training, focused on local initiatives, contributes to successful faculty development. In addition, suggestions for providing meaningful faculty development are presented.
