Abstract

This paper aims to provoke discussion regarding the use of information and communication technologies (ICTs) in university teaching. In the age of Web 2.0 and the millennial learner, universities face the challenge of ensuring sustainability in teaching, learning, and curriculum design. This issue is examined specifically from the perspective of the training and support needed to equip teaching staff to enhance student satisfaction and outcomes through the best-practice use of ICTs.
