Abstract: This case study analysis examines a new model for teaching technology integration in a large, mid-Atlantic, teacher preparation program The model relied on an informal peer coaching approach to increase the skill levels of teacher educators in regard to technology integration in order to improve teaching and learning The informal peer coaching model featured a recursive process by which a technology “coach” from the education technology department worked together with secondary education faculty in order to form a trusting environment Findings from the case study indicate an increased use of intentional technology integration which supported content and curricula
