Implementing the technologies for engagement, assessment, and reflection: The immersion studio as a student-curriculum partnership
Abstract: Leading and sustaining technology innovation in teacher education requires ongoing curricular planning, professional development, and support structures that extend pedagogical goals into solutions that enable equitable opportunities for all candidates in the program. The dimensions of support are as broad as the faculty, students, and the disciplines they represent. As part of four technology environments, this college of education implemented a special studio to support technology innovation in three ways: facilitating immersive opportunities for teacher education majors, serve as a conduit to schools, and support the technology pedagogies of faculty beyond their university classrooms. This poster session will present exemplary projects from this “immersion studio” in which teacher education majors and their faculty mentors work on sustained digital media projects as an ongoing component of learning to teach.
