Abstract

The findings of this study assist in the identification of the best techniques for professional developers to consider when encouraging college of education faculty members to adopt instructional technology (IT). Multi-year survey data, Q Methodology, and videotaped interviews were used to identify three distinct groups of IT-using faculty: Innovative Everyday IT-using Educators; Experienced, but Skeptical IT-using Educators; and Purposeful IT-using Educators. Professional development techniques are also aligned to each group to suit their needs. Using Rogers’ “Diffusion of Innovation” theories of complexity, compatibility, relative advantage, observability, and trialability as a framework, this study also investigates TPACK, lines of communication, and motivational factors. An online collection of 224 carefully edited video-taped comments from college of education faculty is aligned to these concepts and can be found at the author’s website. By design, this study creates a mechanism whereby faculty could learn “virtually” from other faculty about their use of IT.
