Development of Instrument for Study of International Education in Teacher Education Programs of U.S. Colleges and Universities. Final Report.
Klassen, Frank H.; Moore, Raymond S.
In response to a felt need for systematic evaluation of the varied but isolated programs designed to provide teachers with international understanding, an in-depth study will be made of international programs at all US colleges and universities that prepare teachers. As a first step, an information retrieval instrument was developed during the pilot study discussed in this report. The first section of the instrument provides the respondent with a brief rationale for the study, definitions of the language used, and instructions for completing the questionnaire in the second section. The 42 questions are designed to collect data on the rationale, resources, evaluation and objectives of teacher education programs in international education. The instrument, which was sent to 9 institutions selected according to size, type, control, and geographical location, proved to be sufficiently specific yet adaptable to the particular character of each institution. It will be used in the projected nationwide study to identify and assess current programs, to plan for continuing information retrieval and evaluation, and to provide teacher educators with current information and recommendations. The information retrieval instrument appears as an appendix of the report. (WM)
