In the kingdom of Bhutan, education holds an important place in society and is given priority in the development of modern Bhutan. To further develop teaching and learning through the use of technology, a workshop was carried out by a research team to try out a form of professional development activity where user involvement was critical to the outcome. Teaching staff from the college participated in the workshop, and this paper presents the methodology, the outcomes, and the perspectives for further work within this type of professional and educational development. Besides contributing to the local capacity building for developing education, this study has provided insights into the impact of an intervention based workshop methodology on current and future pedagogic practices, and the level of technology use. These findings provide a guide for the planning of future intervention workshops.
