This paper reports on an ongoing qualitative study with multiple cases attempting to investigate how higher education teachers adopt TouchPads in their teaching practice and how their perceptions change through the process. This ongoing 18 month long study is joined by 9 participants from different faculties at the University of Hong Kong. The outcomes will contribute to our understanding teachers’ private theories that may impact the integration of TouchPad technology in their teaching practice. The study will also contribute to the articulation of a model for effective support of teachers and application of TouchPad technology in higher education.
