Abstract

With education reform and the application of informatization in Chinese universities, instructors’ informatization teaching abilities represent a popular topic in social and academic circles; this knowledge is also of great significance in cultivating informatization teaching among college instructors. Based on scale development, this study uses structural equation modelling combined with survey data from 252 universities in China to study relationships among the university evaluation system, work pressure, and instructors’ informationalized teaching abilities. Results show that the rationality of the evaluation system positively influences college instructors’ informationalized teaching abilities. Work pressure plays a partial intermediary role between the evaluation system and informationalized teaching abilities
