Describe the material and social characteristics of the environment in which you operate. Where will your project take place? Who are the main actors involved? Include images, videos, sketches - anything that would help others understand the opportunities and constraints you are dealing with.
I work in the UAE as a faculty developer. Participation in all facutly development activities is completely optional for faculty. Some of our faculty have shown great resistance to incorporating technology into their classes. My proposal is to design a course that will cover the basics of educational technology (some theory) followed by practical tips and advice.
How you might go about bringing that change
I plan on designing a blended learning program that will allow faculty to experience the use of technology as "students" which they can then adapt for their classes.
What do you hope to achieve? What would be different if you succeed? I hope to get support for tech use in faculty classes and faculty to enroll in the course.
