Abstract

This document reports on the findings of a baseline survey conducted at the Mauritius Institute of Education with the objective of establishing TEL preparedness at the institution and thereafter developing TEL policy and implementing TEL. It outlines the findings of a self-review of the institutional facilities related to technology and policies, and the preparedness of faculty members and students to use technology for teaching and learning at the MIE. // Faculty use of technology for teaching remains basic to intermediate at the MIE. However, appropriate TEL practices are not visible there, so training in TEL is deemed fundamental at this stage. Students’ use of technology for learning is evident in their positive perceptions of and attitudes towards using technology, and their increasing engagement with technological tools such as social media, massive open online courses and open educational resources to improve their learning experiences. This indicates students will be receptive to the implementation of a TEL policy. // The survey also established the strong need for continuous and personalised professional development among faculty and staff in the field of TEL. MIE management therefore should include TEL professional development in its Staff Development Programme. The MIE should also collaborate and partner with other reputable institutions that have expertise in TEL.
