Abstract

The design of teacher education programs, including the preparation of teachers for working with Information and Communication Technology (ICT), requires careful balancing of multiple considerations. Due attention should be given to the characteristics of students, the requirements of education authorities and prospective employers, broader community aspirations and local institutional imperatives including university policies and resource constraints. The process of preparing for the re-accreditation of teacher preparation programs at the University of Southern Queensland (USQ) provided an opportunity for a review of the provisions for teaching and learning about ICTs in the light of a changing policy environment for education. This paper describes how the existing degree program at USQ incorporates learning about ICTs and discusses some adjustments being proposed to ensure that the revised degree program may better meet the needs of graduating teachers in the new millennium.
