Multiple Means of Support: The Role of the Office of Educational Technology in Faculty Development.
Thurston, Catherine O.; Stuve, Matthew J.; Pianfetti, Evangeline S.; Thomas, Ryan
To further national goals for educational technology use, the College of Education at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign established a new Office of Educational Technology (OET) in the fall of 1996, which is supporting faculty with the integration of technology using multiple means. The means of support include co-teaching of technology strands in courses, individualized one-on-one faculty consulting, workshops, and technical troubleshooting and repair. Rather than being presented in semester-long courses in isolation, technology is integrated into a number of sections of preservice teacher education courses. The most significant use of this stranding model is in the Year Long Program (YLP), an option for elementary education student teachers during their senior year. The YLP has served as a pilot for redesign of the entire student teaching program. A central construct of the redesigned program is the use of reflection on practice in learning to teach, with technology as one of the elements of teaching upon which the student reflects. (AEF)
