This article traces the evolution of the University of North Dakota's Department of Teaching and Learning PT3 grant from its inception in a Teaching with Technology course to its post-grant integration into core curriculum coursework. A critical examination comparing and contrasting the merits and negative aspects of initial to current Technology-Supported Authentic Learning Task (TSALT) projects completed by both university personnel and pre-service teacher education students within their courses and in field experience classrooms reveals the maturation of the projects and the program, from course dependence to independence, from rather large, isolated projects to integrated, authentic teaching experiences that focus more on students' learning of course content and less on the technology that is used to enhance that student learning.
