    Abstract

    Technology plays a vital role in the organizations to increase its performance and productivity. In India, technology is enacting a dynamic action in all the sectors for the past two decades. The Indian organizations have realized the benefits attained by technology and many have started reaping the benefits of technology.

Many government and private institutes of Indian higher education are adopting Information and Communication Technology (ICT) to meet the three great challenges of higher education addressed by Government of India (GoI)-access, equity and excellence. ICT can be incorporated in academics at various levels, such as teaching and learning, student's engagement, parent engagement, administration, admissions, alumni relationship management, research and development etc.,. Since teaching and learning being the core activity of HE, the paper identifies various factors influencing the faculty members of HE to adopt ICT in teaching and learning process and also a conceptual frame work is developed to understand the technology readiness and technology adoption among the faculty membersof HE. The model will be helpful to understand the level of preparedness among thefaculty towards technology acceptance in the teaching and learning process.
