Dr. Elisha Chamunorwa Kujeke, Dr. Thomas Kennedy


Abstract: : The research study is about ICT integration in universities in relation to ICT challenges and work motivation of lecturers in Zimbabwe. There is ever increasing pressure in the educational system in using ICT to teach or develop study materials coupled with low uptake of technology to transform the curriculum and the teaching and learning landscape. A great number of challenges confront universities in overall integration of ICT and the motivation levels of lecturers seem to be at the lowest ebb thereby affecting total integration. The mixed methodology (quantitative and qualitative) guided by the descriptive survey design using questionnaires; group discussion; key informants and document analysis helped in data collection from 400 lecturers; tutors and deans in six universities who were selected using the simple random sampling procedure. Instruments were checked for validity; reliability; triangulation and ethical considerations were contextualized. Because of the nature of quantitative data ; it was presented and analysed using statistical tools (Measures of central tendency; variability; Regression analysis; Correlation coefficient; T-tests; Significance testing; One ; Way Annova) and the results from the study revealed that though technology had been integrated in the universities; it was at varying levels and its use depended positively on the relationship between dimensions of ICT challenges dimensions as compared to those of Work Motivation of lecturers. The paper recommended that capacity building of lecturers to improve competencies; access to technology; improved infrastructure; delivery processes and harmonized ICT policies in Higher Education should be prioritized to ensure overall utilization and associated benefits derived from technology.
