Lack of faculty time and training limits digital learning more than resistance does, study finds | Inside Higher Ed

A new survey of faculty members and administrators by Tyton Partners asserts that the use of digital instructional technologies, which it endorses, is facing “headwinds” in adoption by colleges and universities. The study identifies faculty take-up of digital courseware and other tools as among the leading impediments to their spread — but cites faculty members’ lack of time and the training they receive from their institutions as far bigger cause than their outright opposition.
