Abstract

The issue of resistance to technology in academia in our technological time is currently receiving attention in scholarly literature. Why are some faculty members in higher education still resisting technology, while others have adapted to a combination of on campus and online teaching, or even working exclusively online? What are the factors that contribute to faculty resistance to using technology? The phenomenon of the resistance of faculty using technology in academia is the focus of this research. This study will explore the factors of faculty resistance to technology in academia by reviewing already existing research and involving experts in that analysis. This study is “grounded” in the views of faculty and exploring the central phenomenon of resistance to technology. It is hoped that the results of this study will contribute to the understanding of the factors of resistance and possibly add to the development of the theoretical basis of re-thinking the resistance.
