Presentation title
A Fresh Look at Technology Acceptance in Online Learning
Presentation abstract
The past year has thrust most Japanese language students, educators, and institutions into the arena of online learning. Some were eager and willing to explore this change, with others less so. Although most teachers are accustomed to using digital technology in their daily lives, for many, transferring these skills to online language learning has not been a smooth transition. This was not only true for teachers, but also for institutions. Shifting to online learning platforms may have offered an upside of convenience and flexibility, but the downside was a variety of tech problems and a steep learning curve for many. So, what effect did the forced use of ICT for language teaching have on teachers and administrators, and what are the implications? To what extent is online learning “here to stay”? Using modern frameworks of technology acceptance, and the results of an open-ended survey of 130 respondents at 15 private institutions in Japan, this presentation examines several settings, practices, and strategies to highlight recent changes in ICT use at Japanese universities. The presenter will focus on institutional policy changes regarding class procedures, teacher attitudes towards these changes, and possible scenarios for the future of ICT use in Japanese higher education.
