Worldwide, institutions offer various professional development programmes that empower lecturers (or 'faculty', as they are called elsewhere) to use technology properly in the classrooms. Once lecturers have completed these development programmes, they are typically awarded a certificate that serves to indicate their successful attendance of the programme. However, no recognized credits are awarded to participants for having completed this type of programme.
This article will investigate the need for awarding credits to professional development programmes at Higher Education institutions, focusing on programmes that deal with the use of technology in education.
