Innovative Lecturer: Using Digital Tools in the Study Process

Abstract

The modern world is characterised by terms such as the Internet of Things (IoT), cloud computing, artificial intelligence and big data (A. J. Means, 2018; H. Arieli, 2021). A. J. Means (2018) stresses that in the future, humans will live in a fully intelligent physical space, starting with robotic factories, smart cities and other tools created by society. In response to the changes in the world and society, it is important to question how higher education institutions can respond to the challenges posed by the Global Revolution 4.0 and meet the needs and expectations of today's students through various innovations in the study process. Agreeing with the position that the use of innovation in the education system is vital to improve learning outcomes, the quality of education services, equity and equality, and efficiency (OECD, 2016), this paper explores the profile of an innovative lecturer who uses digital tools in the study process. The findings of the study are formulated on the basis of a qualitative research - open-ended written questions - interviewing Lithuanian HE lecturers about their experiential approach to the use of digital tools in the study process. The results of the study highlight the importance of digital tools in educational practice (i); the motives behind the choice to use digital tools in the educational process (ii); the formation of an innovative teacher profile based on the use of digital tools (iii); and the identification of the support associated with the use of digital tools in the study process.
