This paper reviews the latest research findings related to educational technology professional development (ETPD) and considers how we might redesign the faculty development experience for digital-age instruction. Grounded in current research and best practices, we explore a collaborative student-faculty model, which offers teacher education faculty a unique chance to form partnerships with tech-savvy graduate students from the MA program in Educational Technology Leadership. This pilot model is consistent with the Technological Pedagogical Content Knowledge (TPACK) framework by addressing the types of instructor knowledge necessary for successful technology integration. The pilot project produced positive outcomes for not only the faculty, but also the students as the real-world experience allowed them to apply and practice their instructional design and technology skills. A high level of faculty interest in the personalized and collaborative nature of the ETPD model was reported. However, further research is needed to test and refine the proposed model.
