Our students are required to to take one course in Educational Technology which can be taken at any time during their attendance. It is frustrating for the course instructors because many of the students have no educational pedagogy under their belt. As program advisor I meet with my instructors at least twice a year to discuss course topics. We update as needed and ask the university for supporting technologies. These resources are usually supplied. We also maintain a wiki where current resources/topics are shared amongst the instructors. I understand the frustration of expecting technology integration in all of the teacher prep classes, but am finding that it is getting better as our students demonstrate their proficiencies with the faculty. We also have a wonderful Center for Teaching and Learning for Faculty support and a Student Technology Assistance Center. Both of these coordinate with the instructors of this course to be prepared to assist students and faculty with our (Educational Technology instructors) resources and topics.
