Instructors’ perspectives on learning technologies in the multidisciplinary Faculty of Land and Food Systems at the University of British Columbia, Canada

Posted on August 24th, 2017

A study in the International Journal of Information and Educational Technology explores faculty perceptions of learning technologies and how they are currently being used in UBC’s Faculty of Land and Food Systems. The study found that all participants use some form of learning technology to support their teaching, such as a learning management system, videos, or mobile apps. While instructors are “aware of and embrace the adoption of emerging technologies to enhance their teaching effectiveness… education in emerging technologies is needed for instructors to become more fluent in these tools.”
