The Implications of the Bureau of Research Teacher Education Project for Developing Institutions. Phase II. Final Report.
Fortney, Howard M.
This document describes the development of a teacher education program by a relatively small university in southwestern Alabama. Three major areas to be considered in planning the model were faculty development, the process to be followed in planning, and finding the funds for the development of resources. Results obtained from an analysis of the proposed objectives are listed, and the major components of the planned model, details of sample units, and evaluation sheets are included. These components are 1) general education; 2) introduction to education; 3) individually prescribed instructional modules; 4) September experience, which is described in detail; 5) tutorial experience; and 6) laboratory. It is anticipated that all undergraduate students in the College of Education will be proceeding through individualized programs by the fall of 1972, but development of individualized learning modules will continue after that date. Problems encountered included the development of the faculty, grading, quality points, computerization, and morale factors in both faculty and students. Appendixes include the assumptions and rationale behind the program, and the program objectives. (MBM)
