Preparing Tomorrow's Teachers to Use Technology (PT3) at Boston University through Faculty Development: Assessment of Three Years of the Project
Whittier, David; Lara, Sonia
Technology, Pedagogy and Education, v15 n3 p321-335 Oct 2006
The Boston University PT3 grant project proposed first to train faculty to use technology and then to sustain the gained expertise in a curriculum development project. Education faculty gains in integrating technology into their teaching and their modeling of that use were clearly demonstrated in phase one of the project (the initial two years of the project). In phase two (the third year), faculty were challenged to produce innovative, interdisciplinary curriculum development projects investigating judgment in their discipline. Prototypes of the Judgment Curriculum produced in phase two of the project demonstrate an intersection of technology competence and innovative, question-driven instruction. Preliminary data show strong gains in faculty use of technology in their teaching and in faculty requirements that their students use technology in education coursework. However, continued development of the Judgment Curriculum lessons remains a challenge. (Contains 1 table, 1 figure and 6 notes.)
