As higher education experiences budget cuts, education programs have inadvertently been neglected as units are unable to replace faculty. As a result, a class of "accidental" teacher educators has emerged to fill the gaps. The session explores College of Arts & Sciences efforts: 1. to prepare for accreditation, 2. overcome staffing issues, and 3. define faculty roles. To prepare for NCATE, faculty: use NETS as a vehicle for artifact collection; participate in faculty development; are provided technology-related grant opportunities; and participate in a college teacher education "work group." To simplify the process, the NETS are coupled with content standards to create dual-use artifacts and reduce workload. This process is supported by School of Education's efforts to implement an artifact information system and meet PT3 objectives. Overall, the ISU experience has enabled the College and School to forge new collaborations between faculty based-in part-on the NETS and PT3.
