Abstract

In spite of the growing body of evidence demonstrating that technology can be used to enrich many teaching and learning experiences, we still regularly encounter teachers that are not engaging with e-Learning. There are several legitimate barriers to their participation: a lack of time and/or resources, skills gaps in digital literacy, existing course design and most simply, a lack of awareness of their e-Learning options. This paper describes a project to develop a process that will enable educators to evaluate their existing courses and identify appropriate strategies and tools to enrich them with technology. The process will also identify any digital literacy skill gaps that may be impeding the teacher and direct them to appropriate professional development training. In addition, it will provide an indication of the amount of time that might reasonably be needed to develop and implement these new practices in order to better inform allocation of resources by management.
