On October 16, 2018, Associate Professor Susan Sibert and Professor DeAnna Laverick, both from the Department of Professional Studies in Education, presented a workshop at the e-Learn 2018 World Conference on E-Learning in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The workshop, “Modeling TPACK in Graduate Coursework to Promote Technology Integration and Leadership,” was attended by teacher educators and focused on instructional strategies for promoting in-service teachers’ technology use and integration through a graduate course on educational change and technology.

While at the conference, Sibert and Laverick also presented the paper “The Influence of Graduate Coursework on Teacher Leaders’ Ability to Integrate Technology into the Curriculum: Results and Comparison from a Follow-up Study on the Acquisition of TPACK Skills.” The paper was co-authored by Professor Crystal Machado of the Department of Professional Studies in Education.

The paper is based on the original study conducted by Machado and Laverick, “Technology Integration in K-12 Classrooms: The Impact of Graduate Coursework on Teachers’ Knowledge and Practice.” This study was published in 2015 in the Journal of Technology and Teacher Education.
