eMINTS is part of an auxiliary committee formed by the US Department of Education Office of Educational Technology that invites you to respond to a 10-minute survey focused on understanding issues around educational technology and teacher preparation. This survey is designed to uncover teacher and administrator perceptions of how well teacher education programs are preparing graduates to effectively use technology for teaching and learning.

The survey will take about 10 minutes.  The survey is anonymous and all open-ended responses will be reviewed to remove any potentially identifying information. Findings will be reported by participant role, school context (rural, suburban, urban), and state. No school district will be identified. Researchers may choose to pull quotes from responses to open-ended questions.  Every quote used will be reviewed to remove any potentially identifying information.

There is no obligation to participate.

More information about the committee:

The auxiliary committee on sustaining educational technology professional development in teacher preparation programs was formed in 2016 by the U.S. Department of Education Office of Educational Technology. So far, the committee has developed a white paper shared at the AACTE pre-conference in 2018 focused on the challenges of sustaining professional learning with educational technology in higher education programs. In addition to understanding educator perceptions of teacher preparation programs, the auxiliary team is now working on locating case studies of teacher preparation programs that are finding ways to overcome these challenges.  If you would like to suggest a case study regarding a teacher preparation program in your area, please contact Christine Terry at terryce@missouri.edu.
