Abstract

This brief paper is based on the implementation of changes to an instructional technology course at one college of education. The piloted changes stem from a survey study which examined in-service teachers’ perspectives of technology courses that were integrated in their program during teacher preparation and the extent to which the courses influenced the educators’ technology competencies. In addition, the study explored in-service teachers’ recommendations for technology courses offered in the programs at the time of training. A purposeful sample of forty five K-12 teachers participated. The paper offers feedback on the changes that were implemented in the technology course, specifically, revision of existing and addition of new assignments and activities were piloted. Qualitative feedback from teacher candidates, experiences and recommendations of one instructor during the implementation period are discussed.
