Abstract: This paper is a review of previous investigations that support an institutional approach to faculty development focused on integrating technology into teaching and learning. Findings indicate that we are on the verge of technology integration but that our efforts, at times, have worked from the outside moving inward instead of centering our efforts within the academic system and supporting its diffusion as it moves outward. The literature and this review suggest that systemic change will only be possible if we first determine the pivot point of technological diffusion. This paper will identify areas for further investigation, and associations that may affect effective technology diffusion through faculty development. This paper concludes by proposing a continuum of change that supports faculty developers in their efforts to integrate technology into the practice of teaching and learning.
