1. Background of the project (problem):  

At my university there is a drive towards the use of ICT in teaching beyond the mere use of PowerPoint. The facilities are there, intenetconnectivity is very good, but most of the lecturers especially those whose subjects appear not to have anything to do with ICT including me are not ICT savvy. So, my major interest is to know what I can do with ICT in improving my teaching. I would then want to pass on this knowledge to my lecturers starting with the 14 we discussed during group work. The challenge as I see it is lack of knowledge of how to use ICT as a tool in pedagogy.  This is the context of my change project. At least this week I have learnt about the flipped classroom. This is an example of the kind of change it would like to implement in my Faculty. I am hoping that through the coaching sessions and your expertise the project succeed. So the title is, and can change as per your advice
