A FORMULA FOR TEACHER PREPARATION.
GORDON, SHIRLEY B.; WHITFIELD, RAYMOND P.
GUIDELINES FOR TRAINING INSTRUCTORS ESPECIALLY FOR JUNIOR COLLEGES WERE PROPOSED AT EASTERN WASHINGTON STATE COLLEGE. INSTEAD OF FAVORING THE USUAL RECRUITMENT FROM HIGH SCHOOLS OR UNIVERSITY GRADUATE PROGRAMS, EWSC DECIDED ON A METHOD OF INTERINSTITUTIONAL PLANNING. COMMUNITY COLLEGE TEACHERS WERE INVITED TO JOIN THE EWSC SUMMER FACULTY (1) TO TEACH ENOUGH TO COVER THE SUMMER'S EXPENSES, (2) TO TAKE PART IN A 2-WEEK WORKSHOP DEVISING A CURRICULUM FOR THEIR FUTURE TEACHING COLLEAGUES, AND (3) TO DO ADVANCED STUDY. TWENTY-NINE PRESENT AND PROSPECTIVE INSTRUCTORS ACCEPTED. THE MOST IMPORTANT GUIDELINE DEVELOPED WAS THE NEED FOR ON-CAMPUS INTERNSHIPS TO ENSURE THAT THE TEACHER AND THE UNIQUE NEEDS OF THE COLLEGE ARE COMPATIBLE. VOCATIONAL AND TECHNICAL INSTRUCTORS EMPHASIZED XPERIENCE IN BOTH TEACHING AND OCCUPATIONAL SPECIALITY. WITHOUT EXCEPTION, THE WORKSHOP PARTICIPANTS PUT SUBJECT MATTER COMPETENCE FIRST AND GENERALLY AGREED THAT AN M.A. DEGREE WAS NECESSARY, ALONG WITH EDUCATIONAL BREADTH. THE NEED FOR COMPETENCE IN THE USE OF VARIED INSTRUCTIONAL TECHNIQUES AND MEDIA, FOR DEALING WITH DIVERSE STUDENT ABILITIES, AND FOR EFFECTIVE COMMUNICATION WAS RECOGNIZED. THIS ASSOCIATION OF JUNIOR AND SENIOR COLLEGE STAFFS IS EXPECTED TO EASE DIFFICULTIES IN COURSE EQUIVALENTS AND TRANSFERS AND TO ILLUMINATE THE COMMON AND DIFFERENT ROLES OF THE TWO INSTITUTIONS. THIS ARTICLE IS PUBLISHED IN THE "JUNIOR COLLEGE JOURNAL," VOLUME 37, NUMBER 8, MAY 1967. (HH)
