Changes in student population, faculty understanding and administrative needs have lead to the complete overhaul of an undergraduate course in educational technology at Northern Arizona University. The undergraduate course which had once inspired to both teach the requisite technologies and technology integration was split into two course; one focusing on the learning of technologies and the other on the students' practice of integrating technology into learning environments. In this paper we will discuss how the courses were created so students would have a clear understanding of technologies in education and have the ability to effectively integrate those technologies into learning environments. Furthermore, the student's reflection of the teaching experience process will be described. Thirdly, successes and challenges of redesigning a course to focus on student demonstration of technology integration will be described. Finally, we will discuss how this overhaul has met the needs of the students, the faculty, and the NCATE process.
