In this webinar, I report from a case study that thought to understand how teacher educators use digital technologies in teaching Art and Design (A&D) in Uganda. The study employed semi-structured interviews and non-participant observations to gather qualitative data from teacher educators in selected teacher training institutions in Uganda. The findings indicate an occasional use of digital technologies in the classroom and that majority of A&D teacher educators face an ongoing dilemma in teaching without proper access to digital technologies (hardware, software and the Internet) and low digital competences. The findings further confirm teacher educators’ limited awareness of the relationship between technology, pedagogy and content in the teaching of Art and Design subjects. These findings suggest that desired learning outcomes mediated by the use of digital technologies may greatly be impeded.
