Development of a Competency Based Teacher Education Program at Tennessee State University. Final Report.
Reed, Elizabeth C.
This report reviews the accomplishments of the Competency Based Teacher Education Program at Tennessee State University from September 15, 1971 to December 17, 1971. It presents the procedures and the extent to which the recommendations of the feasibility study and the projections in the progress report have been implemented. Reports of the self-directed, liberal arts, teaching theory and practice components, and the evaluation committee are also presented. Each report considers these aspects of the component--goals, implementation, problems, and projections. Assessment of the progress of the total program for its brief period of operation was impossible. However, recommendations were based on conclusions reached after having observed the various committees at work and having engaged in discussions that delineated the strengths and weaknesses of the organizational structure. Ten recommendations were suggested concerning commitment, proficiency in skills, stronger incentives, model behavior, establishing and maintaining sub-systems, purchasing the materials necessary to accomplish the aims of the program, communication channels, clerical assistance, consultative personnel, and inclusion of the Director of the University Computer Center in the program steering committee. Appendixes are included. (MJM)
