The concept of online teaching was foreign to many K-12 educators prior to the COVID-19 pandemic. Now that brick-and-mortar schools have returned to a status-quo, does that mean that the need to prepare teachers for the online and hybrid environment has passed?
In a previous blog post, we explored ways you could utilize the plethora of resources on the CIDDL website to support pre-service teacher education courses. In this blog post, we will explore how faculty can use the CIDDL resources to increase their own capacity to use technology in their practice.
The final question guiding our needs assessment was “how can CIDDL be most responsive to their needs?”. To answer this question, data were analyzed from the 77 higher education participants.
This brief highlights the importance of creating and designing more accessible research, be it in the field or in the works we publish to ensure access to all.
In the spring of 2023, CIDDL conducted a needs assessment to determine how we can best support faculty, as per our mission statement.
