In this poster session, a team from Syracuse University School of Education will discuss the theoretical framework and instructional design theory behind a series of courses for undergraduate early childhood and elementary education majors. We will share how the course design team applied the technological pedagogical content knowledge (TPACK) framework in developing the course structure, adapted the Learning by Design (LBD) theory to fit the context, how the courses are organized, the types of experiences and learnings used in the courses to bring the TPACK and LBD theories to life, and, most importantly, the implication of this series of courses for preservice teacher technology preparation.
