Cohort 3 General Information

We are pleased to welcome the institutions below to the Pathways Project, the U.S. Department of Education-sponsored PT3 program (Preparing Tomorrow’s Teachers to Use Technology). PT3 programs aim to improve the teaching and learning of preservice teachers and, ultimately, K-12 students, by providing training, curricular materials, and other types of support through the effective use of technology in instruction.

Twelve colleges have been chosen from a total of 68 institutions that applied to participate in the fall 2005 Pathways cohort. Each of the 12 institutions selected articulated a strong understanding of Pathways goals, including an institutional focus on preservice teacher education, modeling effective pedagogy for preservice teachers, and supporting faculty in the effective use of technology in their own teaching.

Savvy Cyber Professor Course Information

Faculty teams from Pathways Project institutions will participate in the Savvy Cyber Professor professional development program. This online and face-to-face faculty development program will provide 26 hours of training to faculty who teach mathematics, science, language arts, or educational technology to preservice teachers.

The first session of Savvy Cyber Professor, a full-day, hands-on, lab-based, face-to-face workshop, will take place on Saturday, October 22, 2005, preceding the League’s Conference on Information Technology in Dallas. The next five training sessions will be asynchronous, online sessions that will take approximately three hours each to complete. These five online sessions will be followed by a three-hour, face-to-face working session on your campus involving your institution’s four team members, followed by a separate, one-hour showcase event in which participating faculty share the results of their work with team members, administrators, students, and others. Please see the outline of sessions for a description of each session.

Please note that the online and face-to-face training sessions will follow a predetermined schedule throughout the fall and extend through mid-January 2006. A schedule for session completion dates and assignment due dates will be distributed at the first session taking place in Dallas.

There will be two sections of the Savvy Cyber Professor course running concurrently, section 301 and section 302. Participants from the same institution will be assigned to the same section.
