Faculty Development in Educational Technology

Posted By: Gary Ellerman on June 2, 2003
I can recommend at least two books that provide very useful information concerning the integration of technology in teaching. While both are primarily aimed at PK-12 teachers, the content of each is certainly applicable to university faculty.

The first book is Instructional Media and Technology for Teaching and Learning by Heinich, Molenda, Russell, and Smaldino. The publisher is Merrill/Prentice Hall, and the ISBN is0-13-030536-7. As I understand it, this is the most popular book on the subject of teaching with technology available. It includes information on instructional design, integration principles based upon tehroies of learning and models of teaching, characteristics of technology and many other very useful subjects. It is well written and documented, and is a very easy book that quickly becomes a reference tool.

The second book is Integrating Technology into Teaching by M.D. Roblyer. Also published by Merrill/Prentice Hall, the ISBN is 0-13-042319-X. This is an excellent text that I use as a reference and supporting text for graduate classes in educational technology. The sections on integration of technology and theories of learning are excellent.

I would be interested to know of texts recommended by others.

I hope this helps.
