A Planning Process for Creating Collaboration among Deans. Program Report.
This document traces the activities and timelines that led to two Deans' Forums on integrating technology into preservice teacher education programs. These forums were organized by the Northwest Educational Technology Consortium, which is comprised of state education agencies in Alaska, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, Washington, and Wyoming, as well as related agencies such as the Northwest Regional Laboratory. The process moved from the creation of a planning council to the establishment of an Internet site to the convening of the two forums, the first of which was titled "Integrating Technology into Preservice Teacher Education," and the second, "The Federal Role and the Assessment of Educational Technology in Preservice Teacher Education." Building on these events, the document sets out several proposed research projects to identify teams of faculty experts, to increase collaboration between higher education and elementary schools on the issue of technology, and to examine the preservice teacher education curriculum. Appendixes include a chart of timelines, activities, and outcomes; a Forum invitation letter; a preregistration survey form, agendas for the two forums, keynote speaker information, and an evaluation form for the second forum.
