Abstract

This paper explores one Faculty of Education's experience with Information Technology inservice workshops. Expert students knew the IT content and expert faculty worked with the expert students to 'deliver' the content to the faculty and to debrief and extend the discussion to appropriate classroom learning using IT. A Community of Learners model was used, along with cooperative learning and social interaction, to develop the faculty members' understanding of IT skills and curriculum appropriate use. Recommendations for other faculties embarking on a faculty IT journey are included.
