A SUMMER INSTITUTE FOR THE IMPROVEMENT OF TECHNICAL TEACHER EDUCATION PROGRAMS. FINAL REPORT.
ARNOLD, JOSEPH P.; AND OTHERS
THIRTY-SIX PARTICIPANTS SELECTED FROM COMMUNITY COLLEGES, TECHNICAL INSTITUTES, AND UNIVERSITY TEACHER EDUCATION STAFFS ACROSS THE UNITED STATES PARTICIPATED IN AN INSTITUTE TO STIMULATE AND ENCOURAGE THE DEVELOPMENT OF QUALITY BACCALAUREATE PROGRAMS IN TECHNICAL TEACHER EDUCATION. ACTIVITIES AND TOPICS OF THE INSTITUTE CONCERNED EXISTING TECHNICAL TEACHER EDUCATION PROGRAMS, DESIRED CAPABILITIES AND BACKGROUND OF TECHNICAL TEACHERS, AND RELEVANT RESEARCH FOR TECHNICAL TEACHER EDUCATION PROGRAM DESIGN. THE COMBINED INTERACTION AND PERCEPTIONS OF THE PARTICIPANTS, SPEAKERS, AND INSTITUTE STAFF RESULTED IN A SET OF GUIDELINES FOR DEVELOPING BACCALAUREATE TECHNICAL TEACHER EDUCATION PROGRAMS. THE GUIDELINES WERE AIMED AT ESTABLISHING A MINIMAL TEACHER BACKGROUND, RELATING THE TEACHER'S OCCUPATIONAL ORIENTATION TO THE JOB FUNCTION OF THE TECHNICAL STUDENT, AND FOCUSING ATTENTION ON THE BALANCE OF THEORETICAL AND OPERATIONAL CONTENT. THE CATEGORIES USED IN ORGANIZING THE INSTITUTE PROGRAM AND THE 24 GUIDELINES WERE TECHNICAL CONTENT, MATHEMATICS, SCIENCE, OCCUPATIONAL EXPERIENCE, GENERAL EDUCATION, AND PROFESSIONAL PREPARATION. ABSTRACTS OF SPEAKER AND CONSULTANT PRESENTATIONS ARE INCLUDED. RESULTS OF PRE-POST TESTING OF PARTICIPANTS SUGGESTED A RELATIVELY HIGH DEGREE OF SATISFACTION WITH THE TOTAL PROGRAM. (EM)
