Abstract

This paper will introduce the Texas Woman’s University Future Classroom Laboratory (TWUFCL). This new innovative initiative provides a model for shared-use opportunities to enhance teaching and learning for teacher candidates and education professionals seeking additional training both on-campus and via distance education endeavors. In this model faculty are able to investigate a variety of best practices for use in training educational professionals. The intent of TWUFCL is to engage university faculty and teacher candidates in activities incorporating various authentic student-centered learning opportunities. This new model also allows teacher candidates to discern the value of technological integration within instructional design practices.
