Abstract

Our research focuses on the complexity of the relationships between patterns of educational beliefs and the integration of technology in the university classroom. By collecting and analyzing data in three areas: teacher beliefs, best practice, and technology usage by educators, we looked for descriptive illustrations that reveal types of alignments or non-alignments. Findings suggest a problematic relationship among the three areas in that teachers are not consistently using technology in ways that support their core beliefs about teaching and best practice.
