TEAM TEACHING AT THE COLLEGE OF SOUTHERN UTAH.
MYERS, KENT E.; AND OTHERS
AN INFORMAL TRIAL AND EVALUATION OF TEAM TEACHING WAS CARRIED OUT IN EACH OF THREE COLLEGE COURSES FOR TEACHERS. THE POSITIVE CONSEQUENCES OF TEAM TEACHING WERE JUDGED TO BE--(1) MORE EFFECIIVE COVERAGE OF MORE MATERIAL, (2) MORE EFFICIENT USE OF THE TEACHER'S TIME, (3) GREATER MOTIVATION AND STUDENT INTEREST, (4) GREATER OPPORTUNITY FOR STUDENT EXPLORATION WITH THE TEACHER OF INDIVIDUAL PROBLEMS AND ASSIGNMENTS, AND (5) UPGRADED TEACHING RESULTING FROM INTERTEAM CRITIQUES OF MEMBERS' TEACHING. THE MAJOR DANGER SIGNS WERE--(1) OCCASIONAL POOR RAPPORT AMONG TEAM MEMBERS, (2) A TENDENCY TO "LET GEORGE DO IT," (3) OCCASIONAL DISAGREEMENT ON EXAMINATION CONTENT, (4) PROBLEMS WITH FACULTY LOAD. OF THESE, FACULTY LOAD WAS THE MAJOR PROBLEM, WHICH, IF SOLVED, COULD PERMIT TEAM TEACHING TO BE USED TO GREATER ADVANTAGE. (RP)
