Teachers’ understanding of Technological Pedagogical Content Knowledge is critical in accomplishing successful technology integration in teaching. This study investigated how in-service teachers’ beliefs about teaching and technology changed as a result of a set of educational technology summer courses, conducted both face to face and online. A single-group pretest-posttest design was used to examine how in-service teachers’ understanding of the relationships between technology, content, and pedagogy changed over the semester. Twenty-three graduate students completed both the pre-test survey and post-test survey on teachers’ knowledge of teaching and technology. The results of dependent t-tests on each of the twelve sub-scales suggested that students gained deeper and more complex understanding of technological pedagogical content knowledge.
