Abstract

The Laboratory for Technology Innovation in Teacher Education(LITE) is a collaborative learning environment in which students, faculty, preservice and inservice teachers along with community partners explore ways to combine best teaching practices with the most powerful instructional technology tools to create educational projects and resources. Four COE doctoral fellows were recruited for three years to work alongside faculty members in the Instructional Technology program area, to collaborate on how to best build a technology enhanced community in a university environment which has not been conducive to collaborative, community work in the past. The fellows, along with their normal doctoral studies, are currently creating this technology-rich learning laboratory in the college. In this paper, the fellows report on creating a vision for their learning laboratory, challenges faced, and a plan for overcoming their challenges. A discussion of future plans for this project will also be presented.
