Kean, John M., Ed.
This four-volume report includes position papers and specifications for the elementary teacher education program of the University of Wisconsin in the year 1975 and beyond. Volume 1 includes a series of 12 position papers which cover topics ranging from teacher roles and systems approaches to instruction to control and management procedures for the continuing development and implementation of WETEP. An index to all four volumes is also included in Volume 1. Volumes 2 and 3 contain descriptions of specifications for the various elements which make up the teacher education program. Volume 4 describes the University facilities which are available or are to be made available for WETEP implementation on the campus of the University. The essential purposes of the model are (1) to improve instruction and learning through procedures which emphasize individualization; (2) to improve the quantity and quality of meaningful personal contact between faculty and students; and (3) to utilize modern technology in the accomplishment of these ends. A major feature of the project is the cybernetic systems model designed to interrelate specified behavioral objectives with effective methods of achieving them and to enable continuing refinement and development of the program specifications during the process of implementation.
