Abstract

We are witnessing the integration of increasingly sophisticated information and communication (ICT) tools in higher education settings, including those that are broadly described as social media tools. Understanding learners’ and instructors’ perceptions regarding the effectiveness of technology use and their proficiency and knowledge of specific types of ICT tools are both important and critical to the success or failure of integration of ICT in higher education settings. Taking into account theories of educational psychology and integration of ICT, a 120-item survey was constructed and data were collected from a sample of 15,020 students and 2,640 instructors from 12 Québec universities, using a probabilistic sampling strategy. Multivariate regression analyses show that, for teachers, the use of constructivist and interactive forms of teaching is more strongly linked to a positive perception of their students’ learning experiences. Conversely, for students, there is a strong, positive link between engaging lecture delivery and appreciation of their learning experience.
