Abstract: This paper is an introductory report on an on-going study on graduate teachers of an educational Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) course. This study would like to know and document how these postgraduate teacher students have experienced the course and how it benefited and influenced their lives and careers. These teachers have taken many decisions in their lives and careers as a result of doing the course and have indicated that this was possible because of the newly-found skills, knowledge and values. The directions or careers paths some graduates have taken are very interesting and may be not those intended by the course programme. The study proposes a model that influences their lived experiences and decision making as a result.
