Many instructional technology training programs focus instruction on functional skills—how to use the technology—with little attention to the applied skills necessary for instructors to make the technologies relevant and valuable as learning tools. We argue that situating technology training within holistic, pedagogy-focused instructional development programs ensures that the tools will be used in ways that support learning. We present a case study that demonstrates how technology training can be incorporated into instructional development programs.
