Abstract

Technology plays a major role in higher education online learning beyond the delivery of virtual content. Despite the promise that technology holds for education, current approaches to integrating technology have proven to be complex and frustrating for instructors. Understanding faculty attitudes toward emerging technology and its pedagogical value to student success may help to inform the current disconnect between the potential for technology integration and the tensions surrounding its implementation. A deeper investigation of the factors under which faculty adopt certain technologies over others may support future planning efforts by the institution, enhance student engagement and increase retention. This paper introduces an exploratory qualitative case study in progress addressing faculty attitudes toward the pedagogical value of integrating emerging technology and the conditions most likely to promote such integration. Attendees will be invited to provide additional insights.
