Abstract
(English)
This chapter analyses the results of an innovative initiative of faculty member training in Web-Enhanced Learning (WEL). After an overview of the context, a brief review of the literature and a description of the methodology and structure of the initiative, this chapter reports qualitative findings from a survey which investigated academic staff perceptions of the use of WEL approaches at different phases of the training process. The study explores which organizational, contextual and subjective factors affected faculty members in the choice of the WEL approaches at three key phases: at the beginning of the training, during the design process and close to delivery of their academic course. Furthermore, focusing on the question as to whether this action has affected lecturers' teaching and learning practices and enhanced students' learning processes, the chapter reports the problems, potentialities, and benefits of the courses delivered at the end of the WEL intervention.
