Presentation by Maya Escueta, a doctoral student at Teachers College, Columbia University and Duke alumna.
How do decision-makers at colleges and universities decide which educational technology (EdTech) products and trends to acquire and use at their institutions? Through interviews with EdTech decision-makers, we investigated the decision-making inputs, processes, and practices around the acquisition of technology to facilitate and support teaching and learning at institutions of higher education.
Specifically, we determined where decision-makers collect information about EdTech products and trends, and how they use available evidence and scientific research to inform their decision-making. We provide recommendations for decision-makers and researchers on how to approach gathering and using evidence and producing new research to better facilitate the acquisition and use of EdTech for the purposes of teaching and learning.
Light refreshments will be served.
