The California Community Colleges Chancellors Office funded the [at]ONE project for a five-year period to assess faculty training needs, build a statewide training infrastructure, and develop and deliver instructional technology training. In its last year of operation, [at]ONE commissioned an evaluation of its impact on faculty teaching and student learning processes and outcomes. The Center for Student Success conducted this evaluation study between January and June, 2002. The study employed a three-pronged approach: a review of the literature, combined with two separate ethnographic investigations of [at]ONE--one a study of two California community colleges and the other a broad survey of participants in [at]ONEs technology training. In evaluating the impact of [at]ONE training on faculty teaching, the following factors influencing the results were identified: (1) training methods; (2) training needs; and (3) organizational environment. The survey research found that 67-85% of faculty respondents indicated they are more or much more enabled to engage in a variety of instructional activities using technology as a result of the training. The study also found that systematic and routine assessment of student learning is not yet underway across courses using the new tools. Recommendations include acquiring information directly from students about the effect that integration of technology into classrooms has had on their class evaluations. (Author/NB)
