The Coffe Report, 1969.
British Columbia Univ., Vancouver. Faculty of Education.
This report contains the findings of a seven-member faculty commission (to which a student representative was later added) appointed in early 1968 to make proposals for the future development of the Faculty of Education. The introductory chapter places the commission's work in historical perspective, points up priorities, and discusses some issues and problems in the education of teachers. Chapter 2 presents the model of the proposed new structure for organization and government which includes a faculty council, senior administrative board, committees and departments, other offices, and constituencies for deliberation and policymaking decisions. Chapter 3, based on the assumption that the next stage in the growth of the Faculty should be the adoption of a 5-year bachelor of education degree as the basic undergraduate sequence, outlines a curriculum plan which permits the student to elect any one of 30 or more programs, each concerned with a speciality, and to follow one of four routes to the degree. Chapter 4 describes proposed doctoral programs and degrees, the master of arts degree and programs, the master of pedagogy, and other graduate programs. Faculty internal relations (e.g., student relations and personnel policy) are dealt with in chapter 5, external relations (within the university and off-campus) in chapter 6. Chapter 7 discusses continuing teacher education. The final chapter proposes a six-phase schedule (1969-1974) for implementation of the programs. (JS)
