The impact of ICT on Universities: classroom/lecture theatre design and curriculum delivery.

Asifiwe, Collins Gyavira Rubanju

Abstract:
Empowering learners to engage in meaningful, challenging and enlightening tasks is the aim of all educators and ICT has a powerful role to play in this in every university, lecture room/classroom and beyond. Institutional responses to ICT influences have inevitably brought about changes: changes in the curriculum, in the way teachers redesign and present the curriculum, in the uses made of resources and the way current lecture rooms/classrooms and buildings are being reconfigured. This study utilized a qualitative research methodology and was carried out in selected universities to assess the impact of Information and communication technologies on class/lecture room design and curriculum delivery. A variety of philosophical approaches to the integration of ICT as well as a range of practical solutions in overcoming the universal problems of staff and student access to computers, professional development for educators, and internet access was revealed. It is also recognized that rapid advances in technology will inevitably “age” traditional observations in Educational delivery of curriculum and classroom design. Overall, there were visionaries by lecturers, and administrators creating learning opportunities for students using ICT.
