Abstract

As access to technology becomes prevalent in institutions of higher education, it is critical to find effective ways to support university faculty in the process of integrating technology into their classroom. This chapter surveys the literature on professional development, identifying successful characteristics in higher education. Next, the authors describe two cases in which university faculty have supported their colleagues’ attempt to integrate technology into university courses. Finally, promises and challenges of various professional development efforts are also shared.
