ECAR study of faculty and information technology, 2017

Posted on November 9th, 2017

In this third edition of EDUCAUSE’s Center for Analysis and Research (ECAR) study of faculty engagement and use of technology, the authors look at the following topics:

  • Device ownership
  • Campus technology experiences
  • Security training and practices
  • Sources of technology support
  • Classroom technology experiences
  • Desired technologies for teaching and learning
  • Student success technology evaluations
  • Perspectives and preferences for teaching and learning environments
  • Classroom mobile experiences and policies

Among the findings are that students seem to have more of an appetite for technology use in their courses, and that faculty members adopting technology in their courses lags behind research evidence “that blended instruction has stronger learning outcomes than either fully online or fully face-to-face instruction.”
