Majority of faculty members confident in their tech abilities
- A Campus Technology survey found nearly two-thirds of faculty members feel good about campus IT support managing technology and adapting to new integration.
- More than half of professors (52%) say students have an average mastery of technology required for instruction and assignments.
- More than 95% of respondents report their skill level with technology as at least adequate, with 64% reporting they are "very confident" in their individual tech capacity.
This survey is consistent with many other surveys of faculty members which suggest a growing desire for more classroom technology, and greater tools for flipping classrooms. For campus leaders, these results should help in making choices about technology investments vs. personnel additions, in the effort to save cause while enhancing the learning and teaching experience.
With more classrooms introducing artificial intelligence as a teaching tool, and the federal government rewarding schools that pioneer digital access for diverse student bodies, the future of classroom instruction is clear in attitudes and outcomes.
