Thursday, March 29 4:15 PM-5:15 PM Location: Edison F
Abstract: This paper will present the stories of five educator preparation programs (EPPs) and their efforts to meet the call to prepare teacher candidates for transformative digital learning experiences (US Department of Education, 2016). Each institution was selected to participate in a national consortium based on their use of technology in teacher education preparation. The authors will demonstrate how each institution is working to ensure program-wide and program-deep digital learning experiences in one or more of the following areas: curriculum; field experiences and clinical practice; and support for teacher candidates, school-based, and university-based faculty.
