Despite the huge investments in campus network infrastructures, the most daunting challenge in implementing technology in college teaching is the training of faculty in the use of these new technologies. Key challenges for this critical task are discussed, including such issues as funding, technical and pedagogical training/support, organizational structures, rewards systems, workload issues, multi-institutional collaboration, collective bargaining, and intellectual property. This edited book is based on a series of case-studies of several institutions deep in the trenches of faculty development programs.
