Workshops that Work!: Building an Effective, Technology-Rich Faculty Development Program
Teclehaimanot, Berhane; Lamb, Annette
Journal of Computing in Teacher Education, v21 n3 p109-115 Spr 2005
To prepare preservice teachers for the technology-rich environment of today's schools, faculty involved with the preparation of teachers must model technology use in their own instruction. The purpose of this PT[superscript 3]-funded project was to design and implement a faculty development program focusing on the effective integration of technology into courses taken by teacher education students. The three-year project involved a series of workshops and guidance for faculty to assist them in modeling effective technology integration. The evolution of this professional development program incorporated nine elements: popular technology topics, hands-on learning, modeling, individualization, technology infusion, efficiency, mentoring, sharing, and motivation. It was found that well-designed faculty development workshops are effective in training teacher educators to create technology-rich university curriculum. (Contains 1 table, 2 figures, and 1 note.)
