COMMUNITY COLLEGE HEALTH CAREERS PROJECT PHASE II--TEACHER PREPARATION. FINAL REPORT.
RATNER, MURIEL
THE STATE UNIVERSITY OF NEW YORK AT BUFFALO AND CITY UNIVERSITY OF NEW YORK COOPERATED WITH THE COMMUNITY COLLEGE HEALTH CAREERS PROJECT BY ESTABLISHING PROGRAMS TO PREPARE PRACTITIONERS TO TEACH IN COMMUNITY COLLEGE PROGRAMS IN (1) OCCUPATIONAL THERAPY ASSISTING, (2) DENTAL ASSISTING, (3) OPHTHALMIC DISPENSING, AND (4) MEDICAL RECORD, ENVIRONMENTAL HEALTH, BIOMEDICAL ENGINEERING, INHALATION THERAPY, OPERATING ROOM, X-RAY, AND MEDICAL EMERGENCY TECHNOLOGY. ALTHOUGH THE EDUCATIONAL BACKGROUNDS OF 17 PROGRAM ENROLLEES RANGED FROM HIGH SCHOOL GRADUATION TO PH.D. CANDIDACY, EDUCATIONAL PREPARATION FOR TEACHING WAS VERY LIMITED FOR THE ENTIRE GROUP. THE CONTENT OF THE PROGRAMS, INAUGURATED ON A 2-SEMESTER, 25-HOUR-PER-WEEK BASIS, INCLUDED THE PHILOSOPHY OF EDUCATION, THE COMMUNITY COLLEGE, HIGHER EDUCATION, CURRICULUM DEVELOPMENT, USE OF EXTENDED CAMPUS RESOURCES, METHODS OF TEACHING, A TEACHING PRACTICUM, THE NATURE OF THE HEALTH SERVICE INDUSTRY, AND TESTS, MEASUREMENTS, AND EVALUATION. THE PARTICIPANTS ALSO WORKED WITH PERSONNEL OF THE COLLEGES IN WHICH THEY WERE TO TEACH IN WRITING COURSE OUTLINES AND CATALOG DESCRIPTIONS, ESTABLISHING LABORATORY AND EQUIPMENT SPECIFICATIONS, DOING PRACTICE TEACHING IN RELATED SUBJECTS, ARRANGING FOR CLINICAL PRACTICE EXPERIENCES, AND RECRUITING IN LOCAL HIGH SCHOOLS. AT THE CONCLUSION OF THE PROGRAMS, 13 OF THE TRAINEES SIGNED CONTRACTS TO TEACH IN THE PILOT PROGRAMS FOR WHICH THEY WERE PREPARED. APPENDIX A, REPORTING PHASE I, IS AVAILABLE AS ED 011 198. APPENDIXES B, C, AND D ARE INCLUDED IN THIS DOCUMENT. (JK)
