The results for the Comprehensive Educational Restructuring and Technology Infusion Initiative (CERTI) will be shared including: financial, pedagogical, professional development, university leadership support, and the emerging paradigm of digital equality and social justice. Over 15,000 professional development hours were devoted to support faculty and student technology skills and knowledge development. This effort supported NCATE accreditation and graduate education development. The data indicates programs would need to allocate nearly $7,500 per faculty member to sustain the same level of service or $249,150. For over three years, the CERTI project was successful in meeting the needs of faculty members to learn tech-pedagogy, develop skills, build scholarship and in preparing future teachers to use technology effectively in their classrooms. Come and learn the whole story about the academic and humanistic dimensions of this project and implications for the future.
