Abstract

Although a considerable number of studies have been conducted on technologies and higher education, few of them have addressed the disparity of technology adoption among university teachers. The objective of this study is to characterize the profiles of university teachers adopting technologies. 391 university teachers from two universities in Quebec completed a questionnaire. The cluster analyses made it possible to identify three profiles of university teachers adopting technologies in relationship to three aspects of their teaching: preparation and delivery of teaching/learning activities; instructional management; professional development. Overall, the results indicate that disparity of technology adoption among university teachers has not improved despite an increasingly rapid succession of technologies in higher education.
