Abstract

This chapter highlights the potential impact of teacher beliefs on the promotion or inhibition of educational policy and practice in university settings - noting that perceptions can have a strong influence on what teachers believe is possible in respect to the uptake of technology. Suggestions are made as to how the negative beliefs (fears) can be minimized and the positive perceptions can be optimized within academic development aimed at fostering educational technology.
