[Abstract]: 21st century teaching demands that information and communication technologies (ICTs) are integral to the learning process. Since at least 1995, there have been several attempts to increase the level of ICT integration within the Bachelor of Education (BEd) at a Queensland, Faculty of Education but ICT integration across these programs can be best described as 'patchy'.
Exemplary practices are occurring in some courses but there is little impact on student learning outcomes in the majority of courses. The concept of ICT integration where ICTs are an integral part of the learning process has yet to emerge as a shared understanding within the Faculty. This
paper discusses some aspects of how a Faculty of Education is attempting to map the use of ICTs across a BEd program to ensure our graduates fulfil the various professional ICT standards.
