The study examined the scope and ways of ICT integration in teaching and professional development by faculty members in colleges of Education which started the implementation of the national initiative to transform Teacher Education to meet demands of 21st century. According to findings faculty members incorporate a variety of ICT-based learning assignments which are related to presentation and learning management, visualization and simulation, experience in advanced online environments and development of 21st century's skills. Among 21st century skills inquiry-based learning and collaboration were the most represented in faculty members' teaching practices while writing tasks were the least popular. More than half of the sample was engaged in training students for teaching with ICT. However, a third of pedagogical supervisors did not relate to that yet. Most faculty members considered themselves as having good Technological, Pedagogical and Content Knowledge skills and they have positive attitudes towards ICT integration in teaching. However, 40 percent of them reported they integrate ICT in teaching in traditional ways. There is a need to continue increasing the scope of ICT integration but more important is to put emphasis on developing teaching models aimed at Knowledge Deepening and Creation.
