Abstract

Recognizing the continuing challenge for teacher educators to integrate technology into the curriculum, an exploratory project based on a faculty learning community (FLC) was initiated. Two faculty and one graduate teaching assistant (GTA) began work together focused on integrating technology and instruction in a Midwestern college of education essential studies child development course. The paper introduces a peer-to peer-to-peer (P2P-3) model that emerged. A survey was administered to undergraduate students, the course instructor, and the GTA to determine their current opinions and experiences with information technology. Additionally, the faculty and the GTA completed a post-survey on their experience. Results of the surveys were used to measure the success and the adaptability of the project. This paper shares findings, reflections, and recommendations. Included are methods to replicate this model when internal environment and structure does not support the establishment of a typical faculty learning community.
