Wednesday, March 9 1:30 PM-2:30 PM Location: Hermitage D
Abstract: This case study focused on how student technology mentor facilitated faculty member mentee’s process through the Innovation-Decision Process (Rogers, 2003). The goal of the mentoring process was for faculty member to increase her technology integration and implementation of new Web 2.0 as course management system into literacy education courses. Results from this study demonstrate how a student technology mentor can enhance and facilitate a faculty member’s progress through the Innovation-Decision process (Rogers, 2003) when considering if and how to implement a technology innovation into their teaching. Results from the current student indicate that student technology mentor can serve an important role in supporting movement through the process, particularly when a faculty member faces obstacles in any part of the process.
