Title:  Teaching With Technology: Use of Telecommunications Technology by Postsecondary Instructional Faculty and Staff in Fall 1998
Description: This report uses data from the 1999 National Study of Postsecondary Faculty (NSOPF:99) to examine postsecondary instructional faculty and staff’s access to and use of electronic mail (e-mail) and the Internet. Though these telecommunications technologies are rapidly becoming core components of the instructional experience of students in the U.S., little descriptive information exists at the national level to inform basic questions about technology use and teaching in postsecondary education. Specifically, this report provides answers to the following questions: Who has access to telecommunications technology, such as electronic mail and the Internet? Who uses it for teaching purposes and how much do they use it?
