NTLS Strand Leader

Early in the fall 2019 I was asked to co-lead a strand at the National Technology Leadership Summit (https://ntls.info/). Colleague Teresa Foulger from Arizona State University and I lead a strand titled Teacher education technology competencies cases: Program Deep, program wide vs technology in a shrinking educational economy.

This was an exciting opportunity to engage national leaders in the field of educational technology and teacher education about the various issues impacting infusion of technology throughout teacher education programs across the country.

Over the course of two days leaders explored the various issues and re-committed themselves toward technology integration and infusions within teacher education. Outcomes of the strand included a commitment to research on discovering what teacher education faculty want edtec specialists to know, and continued development of the Teacher Education Technology Competencies.
