The support of a U. S. Department of Education initiative, Preparing Tomorrow's Teachers to use Technology (PT3), has enabled a multidisciplinary faculty teaching strategy reform process using a mini grant proposal/award model. With this support, core faculty are revising course syllabi to incorporate technology-rich teaching, enabling all core students to experience a model teaching setting, beginning with their earliest college classes. As year three of the reform process begins, changes in teaching strategies indicate that faculty continue to add technology that works, from using moderate technology such as Power Point to incorporating the latest handheld, wireless mobile technology.
