Within any Initial Teacher Training (ITT) institution, there will be both those members of staff who are forging ahead at the cutting edge of the technology and applying Information and Communication Technology (ICT) in every possible way to assist them with their daily work, and there are others who remain committed to the 'old' ways of working. This developmental project has been designed to encourage and support Continuing Professional Development (CPD) in ICT, where those members of staff with experience share and support their colleagues who have not yet fully embraced the technology. The outcomes were interesting in that not only were ICT skills generally enhanced and applied more 'effectively' and 'efficiently', but also that a much richer research culture developed.
