Abstract

The integration of emerging technologies in foreign language instruction needs to be regarded as implementing a change in the educational setting and planned by taking a systemic view. A few years back there was very little use of emerging technologies in instruction at the author’s institution. Over the last six years there has been a significant increase in the use of emerging technologies in foreign language instruction; a change has occurred. This paper describes, from the perspective of faculty development, the planning and executing of the change.In this paper a framework based on change management for implementing and managing technology integration initiatives will be described. Using specific examples from the author’s institution the five steps involved in implementing change will be described: motivating change, creating a vision, developing political support for change, managing the transition and sustaining momentum.
