William P. Callahan Papers

Archives Record Series: 13/01/27

William P. Callahan. Papers, 1994-2002. 4.5 linear feet.


In 2006, Associate Dean of the College of Education William Callahan sent the material in Boxes 1 and 2 to the University Archives. This part of the collection consists primarily of material related to Professor Callahan's duties as Associate Dean. The strongest parts of this collection relate to the Preparing Tomorrow's Teachers to Use Technology (PT3) projects, the Renaisance Group technology project, and the InTIME project, as well as College of Education work in Romania and Moldova.

Material in Box 3 arrived in the University Archives in 2008. Strengths of this part of the collection relate to Renaissance Group work, projects associated with Bureau of Indian Affairs schools, and work in Black Sea nations. There is also material related to some of Professor Callahan's research: classroom inclusion and dealing with change.

The current arrangement of these papers closely follows the rough subject arrangement in which the papers arrived in the Archives.
