Colorado TTT Estes Park Conference Report.
Helburn, Suzanne W.; And Others
This conference report is organized to follow the conference schedule and includes edited versions of three papers, as well as of the final plenary session. The paper by Suzanne Wiggins Helburn is titled "Trends and Issues in Teacher Education in Colorado" and summarizes the trends which were indicated by a survey of the state programs. Topics considered included innovations in the curriculum and general program characteristics in both college and university programs and in school based programs, the preservice curriculum, optimum use of the education labor force, and change agents and external financing. The paper by Donald N. Bigelow, "Freedom, Process, and Colorado," considers the changing interpretation of freedom in an educational context, the importance of the individual, and the problems involved in bringing about the desired changes. Elwyn Richardson compares trends in education in England, New Zealand, and the United States, pointing out that good, unstructured teaching calls for far more work on the part of the teacher than formal education does, and describing instances of successful teaching. The question and answer sessions which followed each of these papers are also included. Appendixes list the conferences participants, conference staff, and schedule, and also include a directory of alternative teacher education programs in Colorado. (MBM)
