Implementing web-assisted learning and engaging academic staff in the change process

  In achieving the transition from a traditional taught mode of delivery to web-assisted learning, the management of universities now realise that change needs to be led and managed from the top down. They are also reliant on academic staff to engage in the change process. These two aspects are investigated in the context of a post-1992 university, which recently introduced a virtual learning environment (VLE) as part of a managed learning environment (MLE). Academic staff perceptions are explored within the framework of the 4-E model of staff engagement with technological change, but findings indicate a lack of evidence to support the 4-E balanced equation or likelihood-of-use factor.
