Tech Alliance

Recently, CIDDL received a supplement from the Office of Special Education to create a cohort of faculty from Institutes of Higher Education (IHEs) looking to further integrate and leverage technology into their preparation programs. The first cohort of the CIDDL Tech Alliance met this past week to design a Technology Integration Plan (TIP) for their programs through a collaborative and iterative process, facilitated by CIDDL staff.

The members of the Tech Alliance represent universities across the United States: Alabama A&MChico State UniversityGeorgia Southern UniversityIndiana State UniversityUniversity of Central MissouriUniversity of Hawaii at ManoaUniversity of IdahoUniversity of Maine OronoUniversity of Southern Mississippi, and Washington Education Association’s Teacher in Residence Program.

The members of the Tech Alliance worked together to identify barriers to technology integration, formulate goals for the coming year, identify strategies to assist in implementing those goals, and solutions to challenges with technology integration within their programs.

Currently, the Tech Alliance members are working on their Technology Integration Plans, putting their plans into action, and future collaborations with their new cohort.
