Abstract

Teaching Across Learning Environments for New Teachers (TALENT) is the PT3 grant for the University of Illinois which has as one of it's main objectives to develop faculty to integrate technology into their teacher education courses. The proposed presentation focuses primarily on the faculty development component of the TALENT grant. Among other things, the TALENT grant has provided extensive and coordinated faculty development for over 40 faculty projects. From our analysis of these projects, we have discovered six principles associated with supporting faculty to effectively integrate technology. To demonstrate the realization of these principles, we provide three case studies to describe the ways in which individual faculty members develop dispositions and skills for integrating technology and reforming their teacher education curriculum. Perhaps most importantly, these case studies demonstrate the qualitative and quantitative impact these faculty development efforts have had on teacher education candidates' technology integration practices.
