Coping with the new norm: ICT-pedagogy integration awareness and competencies of TEI faculty
This study examined the Information and Communications Technology (ICT) - pedagogy integration awareness and competencies of faculty members of a teacher education institution (TEI). Descriptive research method was employed through the use of survey questionnaire to collect data. Fifty (50) faculty members served as respondents in this study. Most of the respondents perceived themselves to be extremely aware of utilizing ICT tools/ equipment and moderately aware of using application software despite reporting that they were self-taught in acquiring basic ICT skills. They were also found to be proficient in terms of level of competency in integration. It was also discovered that most areas of their competency were significantly related to respondents’ awareness in using ICT. This paper suggests that higher education institutions should devise innovative teacher training programs that will increase the ICT pedagogy awareness and integration of teacher education faculty members.
