Abstract

The Boston University School of Education (SED) PT3 grant proposed a three-year project focusing initially on faculty development in producing technology-based curriculum resources for their methods courses (phase one) and then leveraging and sustaining the faculty's new skills in engaging them and their students in developing a new web-based curriculum project (phase two). The purpose of this paper is to explain the goals, methodologies, and evaluation of the two phases of the Boston University PT3 project. We will describe the main results of faculty development in phase one of our PT3 grant and provide an overview of recommendations for faculty training based on the outcomes of the first two years. We will conclude with a brief discussion of the Judgment Curriculum (JC), an innovative curriculum development project begun in the third year (2003-04) or phase two of the project and its potential for sustaining the work of the grant beyond its conclusion.
