Summary or Abstract : Although research concerning technology adoption and use has been extensive, it has mainly been limited to developed countries. The lack of research in online technology field in developing countries strongly limits the development of online technology infrastructure and the use of online technology at many levels: individuals, groups, organizations, and regions. This study seeks to investigate the concerns of Turkish higher education faculty members regarding adoption of online technologies in their instruction and the faculty development opportunities and other support activities to resolve their concerns. The instrument used in this study contained three parts: (a) a faculty characteristics section, (b) the Hall et al. (1979) Stages of Concern questionnaire, and (c) a professional development needs survey. Results of the study indicated that the teachers were concerned about not having enough support and not knowing enough about online technology use in instruction. "Informational" was the peak stage of concern for the largest percentage of responders, and "Personal" was the second peak concern. Faculty members with less experience had higher self-concerns than their peers with more online technology experience. Qualitative data obtained from the Levels of Use Interviews supported the higher rate of self-concerns. Of the twelve faculty development and support activities analyzed, technology support and incentives were perceived as the most effective ones. Implications for further research based on the results of the study are suggested..
