Beskrivelse

In the thesis Gary Cifuentes argues that political dimension of ICT integration in higher educationhas not been researched sufficiently, and a deeper examination of how policies are understood and what people do in the name of those policies is necessary. Therefore, a more comprehensive and broad understanding of the political dimension of ICT integration is adopted, proposing a shift from an implementation rationale to a policy enactment analysis in higher education. In other words, a necessary interrelation of the material, the hermeneutic and the discursive dimensions of ICT policies is posed as a critical stand toward the prevalence of an implementation rationale.
