Abstract

This paper discusses on ongoing study which is examining the Stage of Concern (SoC) of teaching faculty members in a university environment based on the Concerns Based Adoption Model by Hall and Horde. The study is investigating the participants’ stage of concern through the SoC questionnaire as the population moves to the use of a new learning management system. Participants are completing a web-based or paper-based questionnaire. Based on their responses, each participant is being placed along the continuum of the Stages of Concern. At the completion of this study, we hope to have a better understanding of our population based on their stage of concern. This information can facilitate individualized assistance in the change process and allow universities to better support the implementation of change, increasing the population’s level of use of new innovations, and thus increase the innovations’ overall success in a higher education environment.
