There has been a growing interest in the dissemination of CALL theories, methods, approaches and activities as a part of teacher preparation. However, the extent of this training may vary greatly among programs. Since technology use in language instruction has become an expected component of language programs, we can only assume that teachers are receiving training at some point in their careers. However, research suggests that we cannot assume that this will be an integrated component of their teacher preparation programs. The presenter will share the results of research investigating these questions: What is the perceived value of CALL as a component of programs that prepare language teachers? To what extent are these programs preparing teachers to make effective decisions about their use of CALL? What is the perceived value of this training? What can we do to better meet their needs? He also identifies potential approaches to integrating CALL into teacher preparation programs that include no CALL component.
