This study was designed to examine six questions concerning faculty use of technology in postsecondary education in relationship to faculty age, gender, academic rank, employment status, principal field of teaching, and type of institution where the faculty member is employed. The study used archival data from the National Study of Postsecondary Faculty (NSOPF:04) to describe and examine faculty use of technology in postsecondary education. The researcher analyzed archival data collected in 2004 by RTI. In 2004 34,330 eligible sample members were identified; 29,820 (87%) were contacted, and 26,110 (76%) completed the survey (NCES). The findings of this study indicated that further research is needed in the following three areas: 1) the examination of gender and faculty use of technology in postsecondary education. 2) the relationship between faculty employment status and faculty use of technology in postsecondary education, and 3) the type of institution (2- vs. 4-Year) in which faculty work and faculty use of technology in postsecondary education.
