Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) to support teaching and learning practices at universities has become widely spread through digitalization strategies and to enhance efficiency. It brings new possibilities and challenges and a growing number of studies show how it affects students’ learning and motivation [1]. In this paper we will look at how the implementation of ICT affects the conditions under which the teachers work and are motivated for creating motivating teaching. At Aalborg University (AAU), in a research project “Future directions of problem-based learning in a digital age”, a subproject is studying how changes, when implementing new ICT, are affecting the pedagogical support of students’ learning. The research group have
documented the ICT implementation of a bigger change, and in this paper, student surveys and an interview with a teacher will be used to illuminate the challenges and the influences on motivation that teachers experience when trying to integrate courses and projects.
