Abstract

How do faculty in colleges of education gear their instruction in Instructional Technology courses to accommodate the varying levels of knowledge, skills, and abilities of practicing teachers? This presentation provides a framework for designing professional development courses in IT to meet the needs of individual practioners. Key features of the course development model include: assessing the entry level of participants, based on ISTE standards and their levels of proficiency in using technology; determining the availability of technology and support for using technology in participants' schools; and the development of individualized learning plans that are aligned with ISTE standards and based on principles of effective professional development. The intent of the presentation is to stimulate dialogue on designing and delivering effective graduate level coursework in IT to practicing teachers.
