Project ImPACT is an implementation project funded by the Department of Education as part of the Preparing Tomorrow's Teachers to Use Technology initiative. One goal of Project ImPACT focuses on faculty development in the integration of technology in pre-service teacher education. This paper will discuss the use of a faculty mini-grant program as an effective model of professional development in higher education. The model helped to facilitate the collaborative efforts of a cadre of faculty to model and integrate technology through out their teacher preparation programs.
