pen and docI’m pleased to say that another book chapter in completed and onto the presses to be published.  This one was with awesome collaborators, Dr. Drew Polly at University of North Carolina at Charlotte and Joanne Gikas (a doc student of mine), the Director of Online Programs at UofM.  This chapter is on supporting technology integration in higher education.  Together, the three of us offer two different cases of how technology integration has been handled at our respective institutions.  We also offer some good lessons learned from both our experiences as well.

Official title?
Supporting Technology Integration in Higher Education: The Role of Professional Development.

Here’s the abstract:

As institutions of higher education increase access and support the use of educational technologies, there is a need to examine how to best support faculty’s integration of technology into their courses. In this chapter we discuss findings and issues related to supporting faculty’s integration of technology in university-level courses. We share data from two cases: a university-wide faculty professional development project and a professional development center designed to focus on supporting faculty’s integration of technology. Lastly, we provide implications related to faculty professional development.
