Teacher education faculty perspectives on technology infusion: Implications for schools and colleges of education
Abstract: Technology infusion within teacher education programs is a complex process. Colleges and schools of education have been challenged to do more in order to prepare candidates to use technology effectively for learning and teaching; however, preparation programs face competing demands complicating efforts at infusion. Examining one population that can impact technology infusion, researchers conducted a Q study to better understand teacher education faculty perspectives about technology infusion. Results of a multi-institutional Q study identified several areas that can inform administrators, educational technology specialists, and other faculty as they work toward greater infusion throughout teacher preparation. This presentation will share results of the Q study and provide additional perspectives related to specific challenges identified and investigated by the panelists.
