Digital Education Review, n35 p170-185 Jun 2019
This article describes barriers in higher education teachers' perceptions facing changes when innovating in their evaluation practices by integrating information and communication technologies (ICT) in a Chilean university. Forming and evaluating in a competency-based approach involves challenges for the teaching staff and changes in their role that are accepted or resisted. The same happens in the face of innovation processes with information and communication technologies (ICT) integration in teaching practices. The primary results show a relationship between pedagogical beliefs and evaluation which is consistent with adoption and assessment of the digital tool used. In addition, it reveals the role of beliefs as secondary barriers to change in the face of teaching practices with the use of technology (Ertmer, Ottenbreit-Leftwich, Sadik, Sendurur, & Sendurur, 2012). This study identifies the value of autonomy in student work and feedback as key beliefs in technology adoption.
