Research indicates that if future teachers are to effectively use technology their preservice preparation should employ multiple components including opportunities to observe professors modeling the use of technology. Strategies for increasing the technology proficiency of faculty--and thereby for enabling their ability to effectively model instructional technology in use--are in short supply. This paper discusses one model for faculty engagement currently in use in a major three-year federally funded grant project. The paper identifies ways in which the model presented is responsive to recommendations emerging from the literatures on instructional technology and on educational and organizational change. The paper further discusses factors that facilitate and inhibit participating faculty members' progress toward enhanced technology proficiency.
