Institution of learning encompassing pool of individuals, who are considered as spring of knowledge-the teachers; and knowledge catching vessel-the students, were the main respondents of the study. Frequencies, percentages, ranks and weighted means were used for the descriptive data, while the Pearson Product Moment Correlation was used to determine the significant relationship between the level of technology adoption of faculty and their profile variables and attitudes towards technology use in teaching. A total of two hundred sixty-six (266) faculty and three hundred ninety-five (395) students were involved. Findings revealed that the university invested huge amount for educational technology use, but there’s little of evidence in ICT adoption and use in instruction. ICT characteristics of faculty presented that there’s a need for them to be aware of their attitude toward ICT integration in their teaching because it is fundamental for it can make education logical, efficient, effective and interesting. Also, training on designing instructional material should be extended to them specifically workshops on word processing for their syllabi, assessment paper, reports, spreadsheet application, presentation design which is necessary during their research presentation, desktop publishing, internet technology, adobe photoshop and trouble shooting. For an avenue to effectively use technology in instruction daily activity of faculty, the university extension department in collaboration with the knowledge technology management should design then, a program that would assess the technology training needs of faculty to give way for the development of a regular training activity to non-IT faculty.
