Defining Teacher Education for Health Occupations. Final Report.
Oaks, Muriel K.
A study was done to determine the training needs of health occupations teachers in the state of Washington. Focus was on identifying the most important content for teacher training activities and the most acceptable formats for providing these activities. Data were collected via (1) telephone interviews of key health personnel from each state, (2) questionnaires mailed to health occupations teachers and their supervisors in Washington, and (3) telephone interviews of persons at Washington institutions of higher education. The mail survey results showed that health occupations teachers and their supervisors considered curriculum and instruction topics as the most appropriate content for teacher training activities. Activity formats rated as most acceptable were those that were minimally time consuming, such as workshops, or those that allowed a flexible use of time, such as independent study. (The appendix, comprising most of this report, includes the following: telephone interview and survey forms; teacher competencies rating instrument; sample letters; a summary of teacher training practices nationwide; a summary of the results from the Washington survey of teachers and their supervisors; and a report of the research data which includes suggested content and formats, suggestions for degree and inservice programs, information on institutions offering degree programs, and a profile of health occupations teachers in Washington.)
