The papers presented as part of this symposium explore several aspects of integrating technology in teacher education. The title paper, presented by Christy J. Falba, reports on a study to investigate the process and progress of integrating technology into university level teacher education courses from the perspective of the university instructor. The study examined reasons for including technology in courses and concerns about innovation, in the context of six individual case studies of university faculty. The five seminar presentations are: "Technology Integration, Research, and Teaching: Balancing Social Contexts" (Tom Bean); "Cybersurfing: A New Professor Catches the Waves" (Juli K. Dixon); "Just the Tip of the Iceberg" (Patricia A. Markos) describing a career counseling curriculum that uses the Internet; "Learning To Deal with Ambiguities of Electronic Portfolios: Reassessing Visions of Technology To Deal with Reality" (Marilyn McKinney); and "E-mail Dialogue: Supporting the Preservice Teacher s Personal-Professional Voice" (Stanley J. Zehm). Individual papers contain references. (ND)
