Como decidem os estudantes http://www.flickr.com/photos/idea-saras/8067903029/sizes/l/ BUT: HOW ARE HEIs DOING THEIR CT DECISIONS?

ARE STUDENTS AND TEACHERS AWARE OF CT USES IN HEIs? http://www.flickr.com/photos/idea-saras/8067903029/sizes/l/

OUR GOALSTHE GOALS 1 characterize the adoption and use of ICT in HEIs of the Portuguese public system 2 develop and make available a web based information visualization tool that allows HEIs to share and update the way they use CT 3 identify practices that can be useful to decision-makers at a policy, administrative and pedagogical level

HEIs survey: Institutional perspective on the use of CT (decision-makers and CT managers) TRACER: tool conceptualization and prototyping HEIs survey: the teachers’ perspective of the use of CT TRACER: tool deployment Dissemination of good practices MAIN PHASES

25 HEIs 3 DATA COLLECTION PHASES 57 INTERVIEWS 2 FOCUS GROUPS 19 BETA TESTERS 26 EXPERTS

RESULTS | INSTITUTIONAL PERSPECTIVE 9 completed the survey  The online institutional presence is predominantly represented by institutional portals and by social networks  The e-mail and the LMS are the CTs more often used  All institutions using LMS/VLE systems (e.g. moodle)  33% provide Open Educational Resources  77% of the institutions don’t have educational resources for mobile learning  77% provide training in CT for their teachers  But… only 33% have a formal strategy or policy for the use of CT

RESULTS | TEACHERS’ PERSPECTIVE 185 valid answers out of 19 HEIs  CTs most commonly known by teachers are: e-mail (98%), digital repositories (94%) and LMS/VLE (93,5%)  60% use CT on a daily basis  Reasons for using CT are motivating students for learning (77,8%) and innovating teaching practices (74,6%).  Resources used: images and visuals (98%) and documents (95%)  Resources not used: interactive games (75%), discussion environments (50%) and simulations (45%)  Evaluation with a lower integration of CT ~ half of the teachers don’t use CT for this purposes

BUT… WITH SO MUCH DATA TO GATHER, SHARE AND ANALYZE WHAT TO DO?

25 HEI 3 DATA COLLECTION PHASES 57 INTERVIEWS 2 FOCUS GROUPS 19 BETA TESTERS 26 EXPERTS 1 PORTAL 1 INFORMATION VISUALIZATION TOOL

BUT… MUCH MORE DATA TO ANALYSE WHAT TO DO?

BACK OFFICE administrators and respondents fill surveys manage surveys administrative tasks

FRONT OFFICE students, teachers, HEIs, … info areas U-TRACER visualization tool

MULTIPLE FILTERS AND DATA ANALYSIS COMBINATIONS DIFFERENT VISUALIZATION OPTIONS

CONCLUSIONS  An in depth view of how CT is being used (from institutional and teachers’ perspective) can be a decisive advantage to a higher education institution  The TRACER project will continue to support the collection, processing and deployment of info about CT use in Portuguese public HEIs  Preliminary results and the experts’ opinions provide a very positive feedback towards the relevance of the U-TRACER tool  There is the need for improving the awareness of the HEI leadership on the role of CT to the enhancement of the teaching and learning conditions offered to students and teaching staff
