The ICT proficiencies of university teachers in Saudi Arabia: a case study to identify challenges and encouragements
Nowadays the use of information communications technology (ICT) is prevalent in higher education across all countries. This study focuses on the level of use of ICT among teachers at a leading university in Saudi Arabia. 16 indepth interviews reveal that the majority of teachers do not make use of ICT in their teaching. A number of attitudes
were identified ranging from the idea that ICT would hinder the teaching process to an unwillingness to change
long-standing teaching methods. However, the results also reveal that many teachers want to use more ICT in their
teaching. Thus, there is preparedness to receive training programmes that focus on ICT. The results are encouraging
as well as identifying specific challenges.

Abstract

Nowadays the use of information communications technology (ICT) is prevalent in higher education across all countries. This study focuses on the level of use of ICT among teachers at a leading university in Saudi Arabia. 16 indepth interviews reveal that the majority of teachers do not make use of ICT in their teaching. A number of attitudes
were identified ranging from the idea that ICT would hinder the teaching process to an unwillingness to change
long-standing teaching methods. However, the results also reveal that many teachers want to use more ICT in their
teaching. Thus, there is preparedness to receive training programmes that focus on ICT. The results are encouraging
as well as identifying specific challenges.
