Abstract: This paper presents the research method, the context of the project, and the results of an analysis of the conceptions of the incorporation of a LMS into instructors’ teaching practice at a university in Western Canada. The phenomenographic analysis identified four qualitatively different categories based on faculty member’s conception of self with a hierarchical relationship of pedagogical function. Finally, the effects of these categories against future strategic planning at the university will be discussed as well as areas of further research.
