Faculty Integration of Technology in Teacher Preparation: Outcomes of a Development Model
Judge, Sharon; O'Bannon, Blanche
Technology, Pedagogy and Education, v17 n1 p17-28 Mar 2008
This article reports on a faculty development model that uses a variety of approaches and strategies to help faculty restructure their curricula and effectively model technology integration for their students. A multifaceted model, funded in part by the "Preparing Tomorrow's Teachers to Use Technology" (PT3) initiative, was implemented at The University of Tennessee, Knoxville. The model included training, technical and collegial support, access, and incentives. Questionnaires and qualitative data indicated substantive changes in faculty expectations and assumptions regarding technology as well as increases in faculty and student technology skills and the degree to which faculty members integrate technology into their curricula. The model helped to facilitate the collaborative efforts of a cadre of faculty to model and integrate technology throughout their teacher preparation programs. (Contains 1 figure, 1 table, and 2 notes.)
