Abstract

This paper reports on an innovative approach adopted in the training of tertiary education teachers in instructional technology. An integrated approach was adopted to increase the motivation of teachers to use Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) in their teaching-learning practices. The researchers describe their 'action research' efforts to design a course where participants learn and apply new ICT skills in a context of becoming 'designers' themselves of online learning resources. The notion of 'course design as action research' provided a focus for a flexibly structured course relevant to students needs and responsive to ongoing feedback in terms of a more proactive reflective practice. The paper argues that in the fast changing Internet age all teachers need to go beyond traditional approaches if they are to use ICTs well in their educational practices.
