With the support of a Preparing Tomorrow's Teachers to Teach Technology (PT3) grant from the U.S. Department of Education, the authors -faculty members in a diverse urban state university - successfully used a training-of-trainers model to motivate and train its faculty to infuse technology into their methods classes. The model facilitated the collaborative efforts of faculty to produce technology-based lessons, implement them in their classes, and produce CD-ROMs that are case studies and tutorials for others.
