Abstract

paper describes the process and outcomes of a 3-year project to embed information-based educational practice (IBEP) into the Teacher Education Program (TEP) at the University of Denver. TEP primarily serves college graduates seeking professional licensure and draws upon experienced, adjunct faculty who exemplify best practice in the field of K-12 education. Teacher candidate cohorts attend evening and weekend classes. TEP coursework and field experiences combine theory and practice, using technology tools for lesson and unit design as well as data analysis. A three phase implementation plan was developed to revise syllabi and pilot implementation in selected core courses, train additional faculty on a voluntary basis to expand implementation, and lastly to deepen the skills and knowledge of participants while training and supporting the remaining faculty. Extensive cultural and organizational changes within the program resulted from this process.
