Faculty Use and Integration of Technology in Higher Education
Kyei-Blankson, Lydia; Keengwe, Jared; Blankson, Joseph
AACE Journal, v17 n3 p199-213 Jul 2009
Although technology has become so pervasive on most college campuses today, it has not been heavily infused in the activities of teaching and learning (Grabe & Grabe, 2008). Additionally, growing investments in educational technology (Cuban, 2001; Oppenheimer, 2003) implies a close examination of the way faculty and students use and integrate technology in the classroom. This paper is based on a recent study that examined students' technology use, skills, and expectations, as well as students' evaluation of faculty use of technology to support classroom instruction. Ideally, this paper is intended to help faculty identify effective strategies that could improve and strengthen academic programs in order to meet the learning needs of all students, especially the Net Generation students. The study also provides an insight into how higher education faculty might model technology integration into their courses to enhance student learning. (Contains 1 table and 4 figures.)
