Preparing Tomorrow's Teachers to Use Data (PTD) is a consortium of teacher education programs at four Colorado institutions of higher education: University of Colorado at Denver and Health Sciences Center, University of Denver, Mesa State College, and Colorado State University. Successful implementation of information-based educational practice (IBEP) at four diverse institutions has required adjustments based on the institutional profile, program design, and culture of each school. This symposium begins with a brief historical perspective for the changes being brought through this collaborative project, and then introduces IBEP and the design of the PTD program. The remainder of the symposium features representatives from each institution discussing individual approaches and practices that have been successful in bringing the innovation to each campus. Following the presentations, the audience will have opportunities for discussion and to view displays and collect handouts.
