This document contains four separate reports on different aspects of the teacher education program at the new Governors State University. The first report describes a "learning team," which is to consist of approximately 14 individuals--both professors and students--who have come together because of common interests in a given profession. The team would determine its own goals and curriculum and organize activities. An example is given of the membership, objectives, and activities of an urban education learning team. The second report describes in some detail the role and functions of the Teacher Education Center in the College of Human Learning and Development. Although the Center's primary responsibility is in preservice instruction, it also has responsibilities in the areas of inservice education and research. The third report entitled "The Public Elementary School as a Center for Teacher Training and Education Development" proposes the use of public schools as laboratory schools and discusses the organizational implications of such a step. The fourth report defines a "learning module" and then lists 58 tentative learning modules for programs in the College of Human Learning and Development in 1971-72. (RT)
