Abstract

The University of Hawai'i College of Education PT3 project, LEI Aloha, in partnership with seven UH community colleges is providing significant potential for institutional change so that a continuum of technology integrated courses are provided throughout a student's schooling. Each campus had a unique vision of adapting the "technology intensive" model so that it fit their system, needs, and resources. Twenty TI courses have been developed at the Community Colleges in the past year. Seventy-four faculty members have received 572 hours of mentoring and 73 workshops have been provided to assist TI course development. At one campus, over 75% of faculty in the pre-education/COE pathway have been mentored to redesign courses to be TI and another campus has modified its graduation requirements to require students' demonstration of technology skills. Baseline data from 37 TI faculty were collected thus far, and redesigned courses are highlighted via the website at www.hawaii.edu/etec.
