    DescriptionTeaching Faculty How to Use Technology covers the critical developments in the use of technology for college teaching in North America and worldwide. 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, reward systems, workload issues, multi-institutional collaboration, collective bargaining, and intellectual property.
