Abstract

This article attempts to explore the extent to which Lecturer e-Training Program (LeP) supports lecturers in their preparation for student-centred teaching. LeP was conducted in a blended mode, that is, it involved an online self-paced learning module followed by an interactive online discussion and ended with a face-to-face action learning. It was compulsory for all lecturers in this university to enrol in LeP. The data collection involved distributing questionnaires to all 36 lecturers. After that, 16 lecturers were selected at random for one-to-one structured interviews. In this study, it was found that LeP contributed significantly to the lecturer preparation for student-centred teaching, in particular, Stage 2 (Online Discussion) and Stage 3 (Face-to-Face Action Learning). Lecturers in this university were mostly homogeneous with regard to culture. It would be interesting to test LeP across cultural diversity as it was believed Asians and Westerners think differently.Le prsent article vise explorer la mesure dans laquelle le Programme d\u2019e-formation (Lecturer e-Training Program) appuie les chargs de cours dans leur prparation pour un enseignement centr sur l\u2019tudiant. Le Programme a t ralis en mode hybride, c\u2019est–dire avec un module d\u2019apprentissage en ligne rythme libre, qui a t suivi d\u2019une discussion interactive en ligne et finalement d\u2019un apprentissage par l\u2019action ralis en personne. Tous les chargs de cours de cette universit devaient s\u2019inscrire au Programme. La collecte de donnes a consist distribuer des questionnaires aux 36chargs de cours. Ensuite, 16d\u2019entre eux ont t choisis au hasard pour des entrevues structures en tte–tte. Dans cette tude, on a conclu que le Programme contribuait de faon importante la prparation du charg de cours pour un enseignement centr sur l\u2019tudiant, particulirement le deuxime stade (discussion en ligne) et le troisime (apprentissage par l\u2019action ralis en personne). La culture des chargs de cours de cette universit tait surtout homogne. Il serait intressant de tester le Programme travers une diversit culturelle, car on croit que les personnes asiatiques et occidentales pensent diffremment.
