Innovation or Renovation? The Management of Strategic and Adoption Decisions within a University

Abstract : Most universities make use of e-learning facilities to manage on-line learning, and this paper questions how decision are made to adopt this e-learning package rather than that one, and then how to make use of it. We suggest that educational technology adoption decisions are made at two levels: strategic decisions are made by the university to implement a particular package, and then individual academics made adoption decisions regarding those aspects of the package they will use in their teaching and how they will use them. In the paper we suggest that such technology should be regarded as an innovation and viewed through the lens of innovation adoption theory. We argue that analysis of these adoption decisions needs to be framed differently at each level, using an approach that is appropriate to that level.
