Abstract

This paper looks at the results of an exploratory and descriptive research identifying the social representation of instructors on the integration of mobile learning and the use of mobiles devices for business and trades undergraduate courses. The results made it possible to identify a common discourse related to which mobile devices they are using in their courses and for which specific purposes. From experience, our participants believe that the use of mobile devices enhances teaching and learning by making learning more accessible to anyone, anytime, anywhere. Moreover, they are using mobile devices in their courses to facilitate access to the course materials and online information, to enhance student engagement and collaboration and to improve the communication process with and between students. Our results showed the relevance of conducting further research to more fully document the particular reality of pedagogical interventions in m-learning.
