This study highlights the impact technology can have on the teaching-learning environment to the point of influencing and altering the educational ecosystem. A 5-point Likert scale was designed to elicit tertiary level instructors attitudes regarding the use of ICT in their professional lives at an institution of higher education in North Lebanon. The survey also elicited responses concerning the use of the LMS, Moodle. The findings reveal some ambiguity in this population regarding the benefit of ICT in their professional lives and at this institution specifically. The findings support the design of a new innovative technology acceptance model which would link innovative teaching practices through the use of technology to perceptions of professional development. The research also resulted in recommendations for further research that could inform the development of a tertiary level educational ecosystem.
