The adoption of a virtual learning environment in a teacher education institution: the processes and tensions
Benn, Patricia J.A. (2016) The adoption of a virtual learning environment in a teacher education institution: the processes and tensions. EdD thesis, University of Nottingham.
The study investigates the processes by which a teacher education institution in Antigua and Barbuda learns to use Moodle, a Virtual Learning Environment (VLE), as a tool to offer courses online. Also under investigation were the tensions inherent in this change process. The research employs elements of the Activity Theory framework proposed by Engeström, (1999) namely, the principle of multi-voicedness which gives voice to the multiple perspectives of the participants and contradictions or tensions which are inherent disturbances to understand the social system under investigation.
